| Clay County's 33 black residents occupy 6
households, with only 1 black householder.
"Clay County to the north is a real case [of racial
cleansing]... the last and only black died in about
1950. To this day it is a very racist county."
"My maternal grandfather told me that Clay
County passed a law saying that any black found after
sundown could be put to death."|
