RIP-John Hope Franklin

Pioneering historian John Hope Franklin dies at 94

His book was required reading for me as a freshman in college so many years ago.  Years later as an old man myself,  I ran across him in the aisle of the local supermarket in Durham, NC and was impressed by his quick and friendly smile.  I hope humanity can find a suitable replacement for him to live among us.

    It’s a respectful memorial to John and somewhere to pay tribute to the family’s fortitude at this difficult time.
