BREAKING: Civil rights activist Louis Coleman is dead

From The Courier-Journal:

"The Rev. Louis Coleman, a civil rights activist and head of the Justice Resource Center, has died, according to longtime friend Mattie Jones. Coleman was inducted into the Kentucky Civil Rights Hall of Fame in 2000. He was honored as being instrumental in winning a lawsuit that challenged the lack of black coaches in Kentucky high school sports."

My prayers go out to his family and friends.
