The word “giant” is too small for Dr. John Hope Franklin.   Franklin was an honored senior statesman,  griot, teacher,  master historian.   If you haven’t read From Slavery To Freedom you don’t know black history.

Franklin’s physical presence will be missed, but his work will endure for ages.  Thank you Dr. Franklin.
