Long Description:
This memorial wall is a part of the Gateway to Freedom memorial from Detroits Tri-Centennial.

From the find-a-grave website:
"Rev. Franklin became involved in politics by urging voters to go out to the poles and vote. He also became a active member of the civil rights movement. One of his greatest accomplishments was co-organizing the 1963 "Walk Toward Freedom March" with friend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr."
