Retired professor, activist Joseph McMillan dies at 80

By:  Min. Angela Lee Price
Our condolences to the McMillan family on the passing of Dr. Joseph McMillan. Our community and nation have lost a great leader, educator, and activist. The Lord granted me opportunity to know Dr. McMillan on a number of levels. I first met him while attending the University of Louisville in the early 1980's. I had the privilege of assisting him on the Black Family Conference one year some years ago, and I have interviewed him on the radio on many occasions. Dr. McMillan was more than a mentor, and leader, he was like a father figure to me and so many others who knew him. Dr. McMillan's thirst for knowledge was unquenchable even in later years. I ran into him in LifeWay Christian Bookstore more than once this year, and each time I enjoyed chatting with him.  He will be truly missed for his tenacity, bravery, courageous, leadership, and great love for people of color the world over.
