According to Detroit Free Press, The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the same museum that held a two-day public viewing last month, will display the red dress and shoes she wore during the memorial, videos and photos from her career, and an original pressing of Franklin's first-ever recording, "Never Grow Old," recorded in 1956 for JVB Records.
