Celebrating A Master Historian John Hope Franklin
During the crisis of World War II, De. Franklin's administrative experience and Harvard doctorate could not get him a position as an army officer.
"I said to (the recruiter), I thought there was an emergency, but apparently not. If you're going to pick and choose people to kill Nazis -- if they have to be white to kill Nazis -- you are a Nazi yourself,'"
John Hope Franklin
In my mind the greatest historian this country ever created. His historical legacy will span the time of mankind. If you aren't aware or cognizant of his intellectual greatness. You owe it to yourself to google the name John Hope Franklin and read some of his interpretations of not only black history but the entire scope of world history.
