More than 200 people came to Calvary Cemetery in Shelbyville last Friday afternoon to honor the life of the Rev. Louis Coleman.
Coleman, who died on July 5 of a seizure attack, was one of the loudest voices for equal rights here locally and across the state.
Although Coleman was from Louisville, he led a church here locally and developed a love for Shelby County. Through decades of service in the community, he has left a legacy.
Brenda Jackson, Shelby County School Board chair, said Coleman's dedication and service are an example to follow for future generations.
