        George Franklin, Husband of Marva N. Collins

        George Franklin talks about the career of his wife, Marva Collins, nationally recognized speaker, author and education mentor. Ms. Collins taught in Alabama and Chicago, but after a time, appalled with what she saw in the public schools, opened her own school, which specialized in helping "at-risk" children. The television movie The Marva Collins Story is the story of her life. Marva Collins was one of the honorees featured in the 2012 AT&T Alabama African American History Calendar.
