Post was an active participant in local efforts to desegregate public schools.
“Central High School didn’t have seats on the chairs in the auditorium, the windows were knocked out. And as soon as it became apparent that white parents were going to be sending their children there the whole chemistry in terms of the distribution of resources changed almost magically overnight,” she said.
Post also served on Louisville’s Human Relations Commission and is the founding director of the Metropolitan Housing Coalition.
She will receive the Anne and Carl Braden Lifetime Achievement Award at the Alliance’s Annual Unity Dinner. The event will be held Saturday at Hotel Louisville beginning at 5 pm.
