Remembering Civil Rights Trailblazer Carolyn Q. Coleman

We mourn the passing of longtime Guilford County commissioner, former NAACP State President, and current State and National Executive Board member, Commissioner Carolyn Q. Coleman. Commissioner Coleman was a champion for change and a servant of the people across the state and nation.

As a fierce public servant, Commissioner Coleman served as a special assistant to Governor Jim Hunt for eight years and trusted advisor to the governor for minority-related legislation. An active volunteer in numerous organizations, Commissioner Coleman was instrumental in getting the Guilford County Board of Commissioners to hold food drives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commissioner Coleman’s trailblazing spirit and legacy of leadership will be sorely missed.
