RIP John Hope Franklin

Slowly, invisibly, irrevocably, African Americans have shaped the American Experience. John Hope Franklin (wiki) joins that pantheon tonight. Charles Nash, W.E.B. Dubois, James Baldwin, Booker T. Washington, Ralph Ellison, Frederick Douglass, Thurgood Marshall, King, Ali, Jimi  (this just a short, insigificant list that could so easily include so many thousands more). Great Americans all.
