Superman vs. the KKK
Fruit Cove, FL, was home to Stetson Kennedy, who in 1946 infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in Georgia, and leaked their secrets to The Adventures of Superman radio show. Producers of the popular show used Kennedy’s information in a series of broadcasts titled the "Clan of the Fiery Cross" to expose the KKK’s secrets to the public. Following the broadcasts, the public began to disapprove of the KKK’s violent intentions. In fear of further exposure, membership in the group began to decline, which eventually led to the downfall of the KKK.
