LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A motorcade, a celebration and a renaming of a Metro road today in honor of a community activist who's passed away.

Several people came out to remember Reverend Louis Coleman, Jr. today.

The Louisville Metro Council voted in February to rename 34th Street, between Market St. and Duvall Dr. to Louis Coleman Junior Drive.

Coleman was a longtime director of the Justice Resource Center.

He passed away in 2008, at the age of 64.
