Stetson Kennedy (1916-2011) was a life-long activist for social justice, environmental stewardship, and the preservation of traditional cultures. He wrote six published books, contributed to dozens of other volumes, and composed thousands of articles as a journalist and freelance essayist. Stetson used acerbic prose, down-home Southern humor, double entendre, and colorful idioms to engage his readers and to skewer those who would malign or exploit others. This book contains mostly unpublished work that includes some of Stetson’s writings as a student, letters to newspaper editors; personal correspondence and essays about civil rights and racism, the preservation of traditional cultures, the environment, political theory, and forced labor. There is a section containing selections of his short stories, poems, and quotes. These writings were curated by Stetson Kennedy for this collection.
