Aretha Franklin Exhibit To Open This Week At Detroit Museum

An exhibit dedicated to the life and legacy of Aretha Franklin will open Tuesday of this week at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. The exhibit will remain open until January 21st, 2019.

“This is an opportunity for people to come back and engage, reminisce and reflect,” Wright museum board member Kelly Major Green told the Detroit Free Press. “It’s the beginning of a much longer expression of who Aretha is.”

The exhibit will feature pieces from Franklin’s wardrobe, videos and photos from throughout the icon’s career, including a copy of the first-ever recording Franklin released, a 1956 vinyl of “Never Grow Old” by “Aretha Franklin, Daughter of Rev. C.L. Franklin.”

During the four-month tenure at the museum, curators will rotate items in and out of display to “reflect the same ever-changing dynamics that marked the singer’s own life,” the Detroit Free Press writes.
