LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement after the passing of Detroit civil rights leader and former Detroit City Councilman Rev. Nicholas Hood:
“Rev. Nicholas Hood leaves behind a legacy of public service through his work within his church and his community. He chose to make Detroit his home and spent decades supporting the state’s most vulnerable people.
“Rev. Hood was a recognized and respected minister who dedicated a lifetime to promoting positive change. He was a civil rights pioneer who helped shape activism in southeast Michigan calling for equal rights for the African American community and adults facing mental health challenges. He will be remembered as a strong and compassionate leader who aimed to create a future that is better for all Michiganders. Sue and I send our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and community.”
