On May 30, 2007, I interviewed the legendary Scholar/Author the and only Dr. John Hope Franklin. Dr. Franklin is almost 100 years young yet he has a sharp mind and wit that can easily compete with many of us on this list. Dr. Franklin represents the bridge between Dr. Cornel West/Dr. Michael Eric Dyson and Dr. W.E.B. DuBois/Dr. Carter G. Woodson in terms of African American scholarship.

Also review an article I wrote concerning my first encounters with this amazing man: Keep Hope Alive In 1995, Dr. Franklin was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor...On November 15, 2006, it was announced that Franklin was the third recipient of the John W. Kluge Prize for lifetime achievement in the study of humanity. He shared the prize with Yu Ying-shih.
