Memphis Moment: Blair T. Hunt

Memphis, TN – Blair T. Hunt is probably best remembered for being the principal of Booker T.

What many do not know is that Hunt worked behind the scenes on behalf of equality efforts for African Americans in Memphis. He spent his life trying to improve Memphis, and was a founding member of the Memphis Urban League and the "Negro YMCA."
