Congratulations are in order

To John Hope Franklin, on the occasion of his selection as co-winner of the John W. Kluge Prize for the Study of Humanity.

The Herald-Sun quotes Franklin:

". . . the award makes a judgment about my whole career. That they would look at my whole career and conclude I was worthy of this prize that they put on the level with the Nobel Prize. ... I was speechless, deeply moved, grateful."

Librarian of Congress James Billington said, "Dr. Franklin is the leading scholar in the establishment of African-American history as a key area in the professional study of American history in the second half of the 20th century."

Congratulations again to Dr. Franklin on this richly deserved award, recognizing the significance of his life work.
