The John Hope Franklin Literacy Society was started in 2009 to honor the late John Hope Franklin, distinguished and venerated Duke historian and scholar, ex officio board member and friend of the Durham Literacy Center. Member donations support DLC’s ability to provide tuition-free programming to over 600 Durham residents each year.
Thank you, JHF Literacy Society Members!
