2000 AEC Reunion Video - Mr. James J. Coleman, Sr.


Mr. James Coleman generously hosted the 2000 Reunion of the Adult Education Center.

He treated over 100 of the graduates and faculty to dinner that night at the Holiday Inn. At this event, he was honored by the graduates. To set this clip-up, Mr. Coleman was and still is a “rock star” in the eyes of the 431 graduates. He was that type of man who would light up the room with his warmth and smile. Although he was a powerful figure in New Orleans, he always had time for the graduates and faculty of the Adult Education Center. He shared in the successes of these remarkable women.

This clip is especially important because this was the last time Mr. Coleman had the opportunity to speak to the graduates and his spirit definitely shines through. Enjoy!
