Aretha Franklin: The sound of the civil rights movement

Aretha Franklin was more than just a singer and entertainer, she was also a voice for the civil rights movement. We can be thankful that we had such entertainers during the civil rights movement, during the 1960s. The following article explains some of her political work:

From the BBC:
Her Baptist minister father was the organiser behind the 1963 Detroit Walk to Freedom - the largest-ever demonstration for civil rights in the US until the March on Washington later that year, when the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr made his "I have a dream" speech.
King was a frequent guest in her father's home.
At 16 years of age, Franklin went on tour with him, just after recording her first album.
She would sing at King's funeral a decade later.
King's daughter, Dr Bernice King, called Franklin a "shining example" of how to use the arts to support social change.

One of the primary tools in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is a safe and tested approach to holistic healing used to relieve pain, prevent disease, and restore balance in the body. Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific locations of the body to elicit a therapeutic response. While some may be quick to assume that acupuncture is painful, many patients report a feeling of deep relaxation and increased energy both during and following treatment.
