Event description

Description

Aretha Franklin was a master singer, cover artist, and a great gospel and jazz pianist; and helped fund the Civil Rights movement. She was a woman with her share of grief, as well as joy and power. She transcended ethnicity, nationality, religion and gender; yet was very much rooted in being an African American woman, living in Detroit, USA, and dedicated to overcoming the destiny society laid down for her.

What did R-E-S-P-E-C-T mean to a girl growing up on the south side of Chicago? How did the late Queen Of Soul shape and wake the lives of Bonnie Greer and Gifty Burrows? Bonnie and Gifty will spin the discs; read from work; and share memories...

The evening will conclude with the floor being opened to the audience for a Q&A session.
