An evolving exhibition at Detroit’s Wright Museum of African American History, curated in close collaboration with the Franklin family, “Think: A Tribute to the Queen of Soul” showcases the life and times of the magnificent Aretha Franklin. The exhibit currently displays a small collection of photographs, quotes, and artifacts from the life of the world famous soul singer, civil rights activist, and fashion icon. There are plans to add more items and to eventually move the collection to a main gallery. Other exhibitions currently on display at the Wright include “Oh! You Fancy: Black Hair and Fashion”, and an exhibition of paintings by Jerome Wright called “Music and Saints”.
