Jerry Bruce Thomas: The Ku Klux Klan was very active in the state in the 1920s.

Ancella Bickley: Somebody told me that his father had been a shoe repairman and at that time the Ku Klux Klan was becoming quite active in their town. He said that when they went down to watch the Ku Klux Klan parades, they knew who all the people were although they were covered with sheets and they couldn’t see their faces, because they recognized the shoes. Their shoes had been brought into their shop for repair.
