Dr John Hope Franklin on meeting Dr W E B Du Bois

John Hope Franklin (1915-2009) was a pioneer in the study of African American history. His classic From Slavery to Freedom is still a standard for American history. The story of African Americans is an important tale and integral part of the development of the United States. It tells of hope, tragedy, and triumph. The struggle however, continues. As long as there is xenophobia, anti-black racism, and white supremacy freedom in the United States will always be under threat.
