J. H. Franklin: Teaching and Writing

Special | 56m 50s | Video has closed captioning.

Franklin begins by explaining that publishers at Knopf approached him with a request to write a book about African American history. Although Franklin was a little skeptical at first, he took the challenge because he wanted to learn about the history himself, and since there were no courses in African American history, researching helped him piece together what he wanted to know.
