John Hope Franklin, 1915-2009

A great man passed away last week. He was a scholar, a historian, Harvard educated, and a past president of the Phi Beta Kappa Society --- an organization both he and my father have in common. And like me, this titan is a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, because even in death you never stop being an Alpha Man.

As a direct result of his actions I know a tremendous amount about myself and my tremendous history. Anyone who happens upon his teachings has no choice but to walk away wiser from the experience.

His name is John Hope Franklin.
