    I thank God for the life of Dr. Blaine Hudson. Dr. Hudson was very instrumental in the development and growth African American students from Louisville, Kentucky. Without help from Dr. Hudson, Mrs. June Huggins, Mr. Ed Lassiter and Mrs. Kathleen McDaniels Smith, I never would have made it! Love and blessings to his family and friends.

    Dr. Hudson will be remembered as as the consummate administrator, scholar, teacher, and activist. The number of people he impacted with his intelligence, compassion, courage, and commitment is literally countless.

  4. Aneesah Nu'Man says:

    Dr. Hudson was a scholar of scholars. He lectured honestly about race, individualism, society, and America. He made the clear, straightforward American story seem nuanced, complicated, and even sardonically humorous. He was a gifted storyteller, teacher, and intellectual.

    I didn’t know Dr. Hudson directly, but I do witness his work-ethics have passed down to his awesome daughter, Maya Hudson-Kelly. The fruit does not fall far from the tree and the family tree of life is only as strong as it’s roots. The Hudson family tree is strong and well rooted. May the Lord bless this family during this time!

    What a gifted educator and community servant. Dr. Hudson wil be missed by this community and especially those who followed his lead in service and sharing of his vast, vast knowledge of Pan-African studies and the history of Louisville.

    Blessings to his family from my family

    Dr. Hudson was a great leader and icon on Campus. He impacted many of our lives on campus. Knowing his civil rights background and knowledge of African American History, made many of us feel proud that he was at the helm in many areas. We have lost a great scholar and leader and hopefully we can step up and continue the race. I am proud to have been associated with such a great man. I personally believe that UofL is a better place for faculty, student and staff of all backgrounds because of his contributions. R.I.P. Dr. Hudson.

  8. Lisa Lindsey says:

    I got to know Dr. Hudson through the Civil War symposiums at UofL. I know that he enjoyed sharing his knowledge of all things. His knowledge and guiding force will be sorely missed.

    Blaine will be so missed. I do not know of anyone that possessed his wide breath of knowledge, understanding, ability and access. His abilities were so rare and so needed. Blaine clearly understood, “Those who have no record of what their forebears have accomplished lose the inspiration which comes from the teaching of biography and history.” Carter G. Woodson. Thank you Blaine for never letting us forget.

    I did not know Dr.Hudson, but as an alum he’s family. I do remember seeing a banner in middle of campus hanging with his face, thanks for making UofL what it is today

  13. Lascelles A. "Tony" Watson says:

    Knowing Dr. Blane Hudson was having the “Living Encyclopedia.” Arriving in Louisville from New York City in 1976, he educated me on the history of Louisville and the civil rights movement in the south. As Chair of The Kentucky Alliance, Blane not only kept me posted on the history but was always available to give sound advise. In our conversations, we often talked about the slave trade in the West Indies, the Caribbean and Africa. It always puzzled me that Blane new a lot about my history which I had to study fpr years as well as his American history. We have lost the “Great One” a piece of history is gone but, who will replace him. Tony Watson, Florida
