Louisville Urban League remembers Louis Coleman
Members of the Louisville Urban League remembered the late activist Louis Coleman on Monday.
Coleman died Saturday afternoon at North Suburban Hospital after he suffered several seizures.
He was a member of the Urban League staff for nearly a decade. Monday he was remembered as a tireless worker for the rights of all people.
Ben Richardson, the Urban League's CEO, said, "He was always a great friend of the Urban League, and he was a tireless advocate for what we, the Urban League, believe in, which is social and economic justice for all citizens regardless of race, age, or economic level."
Richardson also made note of Coleman's work on behalf of African Americans in housing, economic development, and education.
Louis Coleman was 64 years old.
