Synopsis

Superman vs. the Ku Klux Klan The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate by Richard Bowers

Superman was created as a hero for every person and became a hero of every time. Superman vs. the Ku Klux Klan traces the evolution of America's most enduring superhero from his inception in the minds of two Jewish high schoolers in a Cleveland suburb in the early 1930s through his early success as a New Deal champion of the oppressed and a WWII battler against facism, to the climax of his activist career in a 1946 radio show that exposed the brutality of the Klu Klux Klan.
