"At the birth of our magazine in 1973 Southern Exposure emerged as the obvious choice [for a name] to carry on the tradition of Stetson Kennedy’s original Southern Exposure, a tradition that links analysis to action, that tells the truth and makes clear the imperative for change. We chose the right person to follow. He is a freedom fighter, patriot and rebel, investigator and truth-teller, a footsoldier and leader in the larger movement for a more human planet."—Bob Hall, former editor, Southern Exposure
From reviews of the first edition (1946):
"Must reading for all who wish to understand the revolution that impends in the South."-- The Nation
"As Uncle Tom’s Cabin became one of the greatest single forces in the eventual overthrow of slavery, so can Southern Exposure play a major role in freeing the country of segregation."—Boston Chronicle
"Anger at political, economic, and social injustice flames throughout the book."—New York Herald Tribune
"The quantity of ignorant hate, hypocrisy, and violence Mr. Kennedy discovered is staggering."—The New Yorker
"Should be read and re-read by every Negro in America."—Associated Negro Press
"A filing case bursting with documented evidence against almost every phase of Southern life."—Chicago Sun
Using thorough and stark statistics, Kennedy describes a South emerging from World War II, coming to grips with the racism and feudalism that had held it back for generations. He includes an all-out Who’s Who, based on his own undercover investigations, of the "hate-mongers, race-racketeers, and terrorists who swore that apartheid must go on forever." This first paperback edition brings to a new generation of readers Kennedy’s searing profile of Dixie before the civil rights movement.
