John Hope Franklin Legacies Series

Since 2015, the FHI has sponsored an event series in honor of our namesake, John Hope Franklin. In Spring 2018, we are launching a new Annual Lecture as the signature event of the broader John Hope Franklin Legacies Series. More broadly, the Franklin Humanities Institute takes seriously the demand of Professor Franklin to attend to both the untold stories, and the familiar ones, “intellectualizing them” as he put it, and placing those stories in the context of the world.
