LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The death of former University of Louisville Dean, Doctor J. Blaine Hudson came as a great shock to many in the city of Louisville. His activism inspired his students and the community. Now, his legacy is living on through an organization that he worked closely with.
The conversation about social injustice continued at the Yearling Club Sunday afternoon, this time without Dr. Hudson. Former colleague Nefertiti Burton spoke of him at the event, "We miss him a lot but those of us who worked closely with him feel like his spirit, his energy, his vision is still alive and we're going to do our best to keep it so."
Hudson had recently retired as dean of the college of arts and sciences, but had been part of the university community for more than 45 years.
Sunday's conversation topic was "fair housing." Kate Fosl, the director of the Ann Braden Institute for Social Justicean, an institute Hudson created, said there is a vague emptiness, like something slightly out of place, at the meeting, "Well it's odd without Dean Hudson because he was our fearless leader."
