Interview with Stetson Kennedy

Interview with Stetson Kennedy

Date
1981-09-22
Description
Three reel to reel recordings. In the interview, Kennedy discusses Stanley Papio; the WPA and the Federal Writers Project; working with anthropologist/writer Zora Neale Hurston; Carita Doggett Corse; collecting folklife during the 1930s; painter Mario Sanchez; his many books; infiltrating the KKK; work with labor unions; and the reprinting of the Folk Songs of Florida by Alton Morris, and Kennedy's Palmetto Country. Stetson Kennedy was one of the earliest folklorists working in Florida. Born in 1916, the Jacksonville native began collecting Northeast Florida folk sayings as a teenager. After a stint at the University of Florida, Kennedy joined the Florida WPA Writers Project in 1937 to administer the folklore, oral history, and ethnic studies section. Among the workers he supervised was novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston. Soon thereafter he published Palmetto Country, an exploration of Florida folklife edited by Erskine Caldwell. His papers from the WPA are housed within the Florida Folklife Collection. Although he remained a lifelong folklife supporter, in the 1940s and 1950s, Kennedy also worked to end Jim Crow laws and helped exposed the Ku Klux Klan with several publications. The recipient of many awards, including the Florida Folk Heritage Award and the NAACP Freedom Award, he was also the subject of Library of Congress' folklorist Peggy Bulger's dissertation. Among his books are Southern Exposure, The Klan Unmasked, and South Florida Folklife, co-authored with Bulger and Tina Bucuvalas. Bulger wrote her dissertation on Kennedy. Copied onto C81-71, C81-72 & C81-73.

Description
Two audio cassettes. A meeting featuring council member Ronald Foreman; David Closson, the Director of the Florida Folklife Program; folklorist Peggy Bulger; a representative from the Florida Secretary of State's office; and former folk festival organizer Thelma Boltin. They met to hear public commentary on the changing direction of the Florida Folk Festival, including installation of a revolving schedule that would limit how many times a performer could perform from year to year. Committee members discussed the changes as a way to bring diversity and improved representation to the festival. Members of the public who made comments included Stetson Kennedy, who criticized the Festival's over-emphasis on white culture, Will McLean, and folk musicians and artists who were angered at not being invited to return to the festival that year. In addition, the discussion centered on problems over compensating participants equitably. Includes heated exchanges between the public and participants and the council members and folklorists.
