Aretha Franklin’s exhibit is set to open at Detroit’s Charles H. Wright museum of African-American History. 

The exhibit has been dedicated to the life and legacy of Aretha Franklin. The exhibit will be open tomorrow until January 21, 2019.

The exhibit will include Aretha’s wardrobe, shoes, video displays and photos throughout Aretha Franklin’s career.
