Aretha Franklin wins posthumous Pulitzer Prize


"Aretha Franklin is still getting R-E-S-P-E-C-T after death: The Queen of Soul received the Pulitzer Prize Special Citation honor Monday, becoming the first individual woman to earn a special citation prize since the honor was first awarded in 1930.

"The Pulitzer board said the award was given to Franklin for her indelible contribution to American music and culture for more than five decades."

I'm glad to hear and know this but it is too bad that Aretha has no clue of it at all.

I never understood it giving out prized after one is dead. What is the point?

To honor her contribution to music and the arts. As a black singer, Aretha Franklin needs to be remembered as exceptional.


@LiterateHiker True but it would have been nice if she got it while she was alive.




It's a damn shame they waited until after she was dead to recognize her.


Agreed. I wish Aretha Franklin had been alive to accept her Pulitzer award.
