Post, Suzanne, 1933-
Suzanne Post worked to help eliminate race-based segregated education in Louisville and launching Louisville's Metropolitan Housing Coalition, as well has her focus on women's rights. After the 1975 court-ordered busing that merged and desegregated Jefferson County and Louisville City schools (she was the president of the American Civil Liberties Union in Kentucky, which filed the desegregation suit), Post organized volunteers to monitor Louisville's Title IX violations to combat gender inequality in the newly desegregated districts. After leaving the ACLU, she became the director of the Metropolitan Housing Coalition.--From Oral Histories of the American South biography.
