Franklin Wilson Memorial To Be Held September 25, 2021

We were deeply saddened by the passing of Franklin Wilson on December 22, 2020. Franklin was an exceptional scholar, teacher, mentor and friend, and he leaves behind a profound legacy in the Departments of Sociology and Afro-American Studies, in CDE/CDHA, and in the broader field.

An obituary for Franklin was just published in Footnotes of the American Sociological Association (scroll to the bottom).

A memorial celebration of the life of Franklin Wilson will be held:

Saturday, September 25 from 1-3 pm
University of Wisconsin-Madison
DeLuca Room, Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery
330 N. Orchard St., Madison, WI 53715, or via Zoom

The event will offer opportunities for remembering and reflecting about who Franklin was and his many contributions. You may attend either in person or via Zoom, pending COVID-19 health restrictions.

Details to follow as it gets closer. Please spread the word widely. Everyone is welcome!
