Klan Rally planned for Memphis

White supremacists are planning a celebration in our area. The city office in Memphis confirms the Ku Klux Klan is coming to their town this Saturday.

We spoke with city secretary Nelwyn Ward, she tells us the klan has not sought a permit from the city for a rally. Instead they're expected to gather on private property that will be open to the public just south of the city.

KKK members rallied in downtown Amarillo last August. The anti-defamation league reports the Traditional Christian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are the ones putting together the event which will include speeches and a cross burning near Memphis. 

Ward notes that the Hall County Sheriff and DPS officers will be on hand to make sure things stay safe this saturday.
