it was really interesting to listen to how she realized such complex social and political issues existed in the world around her as a child and what she did to learn more as she developed as a teen. Her love of learning has taken her far and her experiences are very inspiring to listen to.

Great Video. She touched on everything in this video from gender, to ethnic background, to sexual orientation, to different points of view. Being the 1st and only female mayor (Atlanta) is inspiring. We've come a long way, but we still have work to do!

First I just want to say thank you for posting this video. It is truly amazing to see how far we have come and where we are headed. Truly inspiring to hear what we as a people should be doing to carry on what was started before us. Amazing! Enjoyed every minute.

I've always been a fan of Shirley Franklin but this just solidified that even further for me! She such a wonderful representative for people of color and for women! I would love to sit at her knee and hear more of her stories!
