John Hope Franklin, Famed Historian Who Devoted His Life to Fighting Racism and Documenting African American History, Dies at Age 94

Throughout his entire life, John Hope Franklin was an advocate for those needing a voice.  In addition to his lifelong efforts to promote racial equality, his footsteps in history show us that even as we age, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of others.  Aging never slowed down Mr. Franklin, who continued his tireless efforts to advance social good.  While this blog is designed primarily to cover topics related to nursing home care, we also believe that it should be used to showcase the extraordinary efforts made by those in the senior community.  Leaders such as Mr. Franklin, remind us that age is much more than a number – it’s also an asset.  Seniors have immense knowledge derived from experiences, from which younger generations can learn and to which they should listen.
