Our legends are passing away. Aretha Franklin was bold and brilliant her entire career. She wasn’t held up as an activist, but she was. She not only supported the Civil Rights Movement, but the Black Panthers and other activists throughout the generations. Deeper than that, she made music that was rooted in a healthy self-esteem for herself and for Black folk in general. She will be so missed!
