Thomas Robb is the Ku Klux Klan's national director.
He took over the KKK in 1989.
He is said to use three post office boxes in Harrison, Arkansas.
He has a compound in Zinc, Arkansas.
He is pastor of the Christian Revival Center, a 'Christian Identity' center based in Zinc.
Sunday's protest was organized by Bridge the Gap NWA and also promoted by Ozarks Hate Watch, drawing Black Lives Matters protesters from as far away as Branson and Springfield.
The protesters met at the Harrison Police Department before traveling in a caravan towards Zinc, according to 40/29 News.
Along the road to Zinc, the protesters' caravan passed people holding signs that read 'Turn back,' according to photos shared on Ozarks Hate Watch's Facebook page.
Once in Zinc, the group posted pictures of armed men - some in military-style fatigues - standing in front of cars blocking a dirt road to Robb's compound.
'Militia blocking the road to the Klan Compound,' Ozarks Hate Watch's photo caption states, apparently referring to the road that leads to Robb's Zinc home. 'Too bad they didn't realize we had no intention on going to his compound.'
'You're out here in your little neck of the woods where you think you don't have to see the people that you hate,' protester Sonny Cropper told KY3, explaining why he and others had traveled to the small town.
'We know that hatred is here and we still don't tolerate it.'
The news station reported that several dozen protesters had descended on the town for what they planned to be a peaceful protest.
'Several' locals were seen congregating at the other end of the town.
Photos from the protest show Zinc locals carrying rifles, standing and sitting on front porches apparently keeping an eye on the protesters and protecting their homes.
