activists and someone who embraced this community which she belonged to from the time she was so she's family but she's also an international global star what's your legacy you touched on the fact that she was also a civil rights icon and when you look at her what is it her music is it her civil rights activity what does she leave behind well in addition to a wealth of music that is unparalleled and she taught us all how to demand respect she was someone who quietly worked behind the scenes in civil rights picking up the tab to bail ministers out of jail and even paying the bills and meeting the payroll for the civil rights movement so she did a lot of things that people weren't aware. they weren't surprised because she did a lot of those things right here in detroit helping people in ways that were too numerous to mention and you did something interesting you asked the readers of your column what should happen to remember a wreath of franklin and some interesting ideas came out of that want to tell us about well her music is going to live forever but that doesn't mean you just sort
