William Stetson Kennedy, whose radical opposition to Jim Crow racial segregation made him a pariah in his hometown early in life and an honored elder statesman late in life, died Saturday at Baptist Medical Center South. He was 94.



He then worked on a book that would eventually be published as “The Klan Unmasked,” filled with incidents uncovered when he and another man began infiltrating meetings of the Klan and another Georgia hate group, the Columbians. He thought that book would be published in 1948.


Just wanted to give this gentleman a tip of the hat and show ATS a great story. This was a great man, one who had a hell of a lot of courage going against the Klan in the wrong time and wrong place. At least he lived a long life, and finally is getting some of he recognition he deserved. I had never heard of him before, and figured many others probably have not either.
