Shortly after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Los Angeles schoolteacher Harriet Glickman wrote to Charles Schulz about integrating the world of Peanuts. She believed that the popular comic strip could help shape American attitudes on race. The result of their correspondence was the character of Franklin, introduced to Peanuts fans in the summer of 1968. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Franklin’s poignant debut with an engaging display of correspondence between Glickman and Schulz, paired with the original comic strips that became a cultural benchmark in the history of American comics.
