The signs proclaiming Anderson Street between 15th and 17th Streets as "Rev. Charles Elliott, Jr. Way."
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The life's work of one of the community's longest serving spiritual leaders was honored by Louisville Metro Government.
Reverend Charles Elliot, Junior devoted his life to the King Solomon Baptist Church on Anderson Street in the California neighborhood. Friday, honorary street signs reading "The Reverend Charles Elliott Junior Way" were placed on Anderson between 15th Street and 17th Street.
A gracious Rev. Elliott thanked Councilman David Tandy and his supporters for the honor.
"I thank God that I was able to stand here today and see what God has done," said Elliott. "He's an awesome God. I thank God for our mayor and all of you all."
Elliott, who came to Louisville in 1960 and began at King Solomon in 1961, has been a staunch advocate for equal rights and pay for African Americans.
