Anastasia Books invites the community to a birthday celebration for Stetson Kennedy during the First Friday Art Walk.
Kennedy, the 91-year-old civil rights activist, folklorist and environmentalist, authored four books on civil rights and the Florida classic “Palmetto Country,” a social history of Florida’s ethnic cultures and folklore in the 1930s.
(More at his MySpace site with “Stetson Kennedy” by Florida folk music patriarch, Frank Thomas.)
We’re blessed to know the legend and some of his family. He continues to inspire us all.
Happy Birthday, big chief!
