Synopsis

Personal account of the life of octogenerian John Hope Franklin, one of America's leading historians, emeritus professor at both the University of Chicago and Duke University, and recipient of the Medal of Freedom and 105 honorary degrees. Franklin leads viewers from a tiny black hamlet in Oklahoma where he was born, through Tulsa's race riots, his decision to pursue a doctorate at Harvard, and a life spent teaching, writing trailblazing studies of the realities of African-American and Southern history, and participating in the civil rights movement.
