TOPIC: Dr. John Hope Franklin: Master Griot...A Tribute

(January 2, 1915-March 25, 2009)
Portrait by Simmie Knox

On The History Of African Americans:
"In discussing the history of a people one must distinguish between what has actually happened and what those who have written the history have said has happened. So far as the actual history of the American Negro is concerned, there is nothing particularly new about it. It is an exciting story, a remarkable story. It is the story of slavery and freedom, humanity and inhumanity, democracy and its denial. It is tragedy and triumph, suffering and compassion, sadness and joy."

"One might argue the historian is the conscience of the nation, if honesty and consistency are factors that nurture the conscience."

"I think knowing one's history leads one to act in a more enlightened fashion. I can not imagine how knowing one's history would not urge one to be an activist."

"I want to be out there on the firing line, helping, directing or doing something to try to make this a better world, a better place to live." ~Dr. John Hope Franklin

Tha Artivist Says:
"Who You Are Will Show In What You Do."
~Thoms A. Edison

This man has planted many seeds for many generations to come...I am glad that I have let his seed of compassion for and sharing with my fellow humans germinate in my fertile mind and imagination...A wise man once told me that your true legacy lies in those people who you touched and inspired by your actions and character...Long live Dr. John Hope Franklin a.k.a. The Dean Of African American History!!!

Featured Guests Paying Tribute:
U.S. Pres. Bill Clinton
U.S. Pres. Barack Obama
U.S. Rep John Lewis (D, GA)
