With the end of the war the people of West Virgina were helpless. The klan was there to lend a hand up not a hand out. Big business rolled into the coal fields and for a short time the state boomed. In the 1920’s west va. Had 20-50,000 members strong and the klan helped take care of the people. Now the coal fields are dried up band the companies left entire towns again helpless. The klan is helping those areas where needed.
The media does not tell the whole story about the klan, only the sensationalized negative stories are written about. The benevolence of the klan has helped thousands of families both black and white with basic needs and help in all areas.
The klans presence today here in west Virginia is growing for more info contact.
