A former federal judge and prominent Nashville attorney

contributed nearly $3,000 to a nonprofit group tied to the violent white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Va.

Robert L. Echols, a lawyer at Bass Berry & Sims, donated $2,950 to the Mary Noel Kershaw Foundation, which funds firearms self-defense training for the League of the South. Southern Poverty Law Center considers both organizations "neo-confederate" hate groups.

One of the foundationís main activities is to provide grants to the League. In 2015 the Kershaw Foundation paid for three self-defense classes, public tax records show ó one with firearms, with an average of 15 people attending each class.
