Aretha Franklin is celebrated in Wright museum exhibit

Museum officials behind a new Aretha Franklin exhibit titled “Think” are hoping visitors will do just that.

The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History will premiere the exhibit on Tuesday awaiting, featuring photos and video in an intimate display space.

You could say the exhibit is an extension of the two-day public viewing that followed Franklin’s Aug. 16 death, when more than 31,000 mourners filed through the Wright museum to pay final respects. “Think” even includes the red gown and shoes in which Franklin was dressed during the visitation.
