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.

About the Author

Rick Bowers worked as a newspaper reporter and editor for more than 15 years, reporting for the Patriot Ledger of Quincy, Massachusetts, the Miami Herald, and USA Today. His articles have been published in many of the most prestigious publications in the country, including the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Philadelphia Inquirer, and TIME. Over the past decade Bowers has envisioned and directed innovative multimedia projects, telling powerful, socially relevant stories through print, the web, TV, radio, music, and drama. Working with AARP, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, and the Library of Congress, he directed Voices of Civil Rights, a multimedia project that gathered thousands of first-hand accounts of the Civil Rights Movement to form the world's largest archive of testimonials from the era. The initiative included a History Channel documentary that won both Emmy and Peabody Awards. The website won the prestigious Webby Award. Bowers is the Director of Creative Initiatives at AARP, where he continues to develop far-reaching multimedia programs. He lives in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., with his wife and two daughters.
