Abstract:

John Hope Franklin lived through America's most defining 20th-century transformation, the dismantling of legally-protected racial segregation. He overcame racial prejudice to obtain a Ph.D. from Harvard, and become the first black professor to assume a full professorship at a white institution. Whether aiding Thurgood Marshall's preparation for Brown v. Board in 1954, marching to Montgomery in 1965, or testifying against Robert Bork's nomination to the Supreme Court in 1987, Franklin pushed the national conversation on race towards humanity and equality. He became one of the world's most celebrated historians and reshaped the way African American history is understood and taught.
