A little over a month after Aretha’s passing, the city of Detroit is opening a museum in honor of the late great Aretha Franklin. Think: A Tribute to the Queen of Soul will be at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History from September 24 – January 21st, 2019.
According to museum board member, Kelly Major Green, “This is an opportunity for people to come back and engage, reminisce and reflect. It’s the beginning of a much longer expression of who Aretha is.”
As apart of the museum there will be shoes and clothes worn by Aretha, videos and photographs from her legendary career, and more tokens of remembrance.
