Stetson Kennedy

We were saddened to learn of the death of Mr. Stetson Kennedy this past weekend. Here is a nice article from the New York Times about Stetson Kennedy’s great work,
and one from the great Jeff Klinkenberg.

Here is a link to his obituary in the New York Times. Below is a repost of a previous post about Mr. Kennedy’s work.

Stetson Kennedy is the author of Grits and Grunts, Folkloric Key West for Pineapple Press. He is a prolific writer with varied interests. But he is also a human rights activist known for his infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan. He’s really quite fascinating–there’s even songs written about him. Below are links to learn more, including how what he and Superman have to do with each other!
