Up To Date Remembers Reverend Nelson 'Fuzzy' Thompson
Reverend Nelson “Fuzzy” Thompson, one of Kansas City’s leading civil rights leaders, died last weekend. Thompson was a long time president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Greater Kansas City. For years, he helped stage the annual citywide commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of the largest such celebrations in the nation.
On Tuesday's Up To Date, Steve Kraske remembered the Rev. Thompson with Gwen Grant, president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Kansas City, and Rev. Sam Mann, executive director of United Inner City Services and a long-time civil rights leader.
