The Reverend Clarence LaVaughn Franklin (January 22, 1915 – July 27, 1984), better known as C. L. Franklin, was a highly influential African-American Baptist preacher and civil rights activist. A friend and associate of Martin Luther King, Jr., Franklin led a civil rights march in Detroit in 1963 and was a member of the executive committee of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. A brilliant and spiritually gifted orator, his sermons were often recorded and published as successful LP records to a nationwide audience. He also toured widely and was influential in the gospel music scene, and his training of his daughter Aretha Franklin as a gospel singer was instrumental in her later success.

Adult education, also known as continuing education, is a broad term for the practice of teaching and educating adults. Unlike education for children and young adults, which is often mandated through legislation and strictly structured into steadily advancing levels of achievement, adult education can be broken into several different fields of specialization: Vocational education, personal enrichment, and, for some adults, remedial training in literacy and other skills. The techniques and tools for adult education are also very different from education for children.
