Franklin, 1968

The Edge of the American West has a post about Charles Schulz’ introduction of Franklin in Peanuts as Schulz’ quietly anti-racist response to the times, and juxtaposes it with Hank Ketcham’s Jackson, the  first African-American character in Dennis the Menace.  Scroll down to the comments for an excerpt of an interview where Schulz discusses responses to Franklin.
