Stetson Kennedy

Stetson Kennedy has spent a lifetime in the service of his country, whether or not his country appreciated it. During the Great Depression, Kennedy collected and documented songs and stories for the Florida Writers' Project. In the 1940s, he infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan and shared their secrets with the media. He's published several books, including The Jim Crow Guide, a compendium of discriminatory laws. All of this indicates an unrelenting drive to make the world a better place, to rail against injustice and to celebrate positive cultural traditions. And Kennedy is still at it, through the Stetson Kennedy Foundation. You can read more about Kennedy and his work by clicking the links below.
