Howard Craft created The Jade City Pharaoh. The superhero guards Concrete Falls, a place not unlike Durham, North Carolina. The Jade City Pharaoh has been the subject of a stage play, a comic book, and a series of WUNC radio shorts.
The Jade City Pharaoh is one of the few African American superheroes in the world, and he's the only one to have his own radio show.
