DIXIE DAYS PRESS CONFERENCE
Dixie Days Southern Heritage Festival is proud to announce that there
will be a press conference beginning at 10:30 am on Saturday June 10 at the
Events Tent featuring well known black Confederate advocate HK Edgerton.
Mr. Edgerton has gained national attention for his vigorous advocacy of
Confederate and Southern heritage issues. He has gained near celebrity
status for his Walk Across Dixie and frequent television appearances. He is
scheduled to appear on an upcoming Hannity and Colmes program. A former
NAACP Chairman in Asheville, North Carolina, Mr. Edgerton has confounded his
critics and defied political correctness at every turn.
Mr. Edgerton is in full agreement with Richmond Mayor Douglas Wilder
who was quoted in Sunday's Richmond Times Dispatch as stating "the myth that
goes about is that slavery was a Southern problem," he said, noting that
Northern states also participated in the trade of humans. "It is an American
problem. It is a national concern." Mr. Edgerton is a huge supporter of
accurate history in schools and has also been involved in a number of lst
Amendment issues regarding Southern schoolchildren through his position with
the Southern Legal Resource Center in Black Mountain, North Carolina.
Dixie Days is Hanover County's premier heritage festival. It will be
held at the Pole Green Park on June 10-11.
Anyone desiring information about Mr. Edgerton's Press Conference or
Dixie Days should contact Grayson Jennings at 804.901.4970.
