There were two separate articles that appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer and the USAToday newspapers on Friday, August 17, 2018. The first article was about the death of the “Queen of Soul”—Aretha Franklin. It was titled: “Aretha Franklin’s Civil Rights Legacy.” It wasn’t about all the gold records that she recorded, but it was about her support of her Baal preacher father’s anti-Christian civil rights movement. Aretha was needed in the civil rights struggle that her father, Negro preacher, C. L. Franklin, helped lead. Aretha had helped fund the Communist movement quietly and anonymously for decades.
