In celebration of the birthday of Apollo Legend and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, we present an encore presentation of Aretha!, Apollo Education’s Live Wire on the life and legacy of Aretha Franklin.

Live Wire takes a deep dive into the artistry of Aretha Franklin with a conversation led by writer and cultural critic Emily J. Lordi and three scholars and culture workers — Fredara Hadley, DJ Lynnée Denise, and Portia Maultsby. The discussion will provide an opportunity to learn more about the still understudied subject of Franklin’s musicianship.
