Harrison Mayor outraged over negative publicity received from KKKJan 15th, 2013 | By E J | Category: Latest
Tuesday, local and state leaders spoke at Philander Smith College. The main speaker was the Mayor of Harrison. The city is known as the KKK headquarters, a reputation the community is working tirelessly to shed.
A P.O.Box. That is what Mayor Jeff Crockett says is a tie to the KKK. The leader lives in Zinc, just outside Harrison, but uses the city’s mailing address.
It’s been more than 100 years since rioters forced black residents out of the town and Mayor Crockett says things have changed drastically, but the infamy remains.
