Shelby Pendergraft Andrew Pendergraft and Chairty Pendergraft pose... News PhotoChurch,Exclusive,Human Interest,Ku Klux Klan,Pastor,Photograph,Portrait,UK,VerticalPhotographer Collection: Barcroft Media BERGMAN, AR - JUNE 06: *** EXCLUSIVE *** (L-R) Shelby Pendergraft, 17, Andrew Pendergraft, 10, and Chairty Pendergraft, 19, pose for a photograph at the Christian Revival Center on June 06, 2010 in Bergman, Arkansas. Pretty blonde sisters Charity and Shelby Pendergraft pose sweetly in their neat uniforms as if they are members of the St John's Ambulance helping out in their community. But the red symbol on their arms belongs to part of a shocking history which has made their religion the Klu Klux Klan the most feared and hated in the world. Charity, 19, and Shelby, 17, are not allowed to mix with people of other races, and have been indoctrinated into believing they must marry a white man and bear children to help white people from becoming extinct. The message of hatred to non-whites has been passed down to the girls and their brother Andrew, 10, by mum Rachel, 40, who was raised in KKK beliefs by her dad Thomas Robb, 64, the national leader.
