Ineria Hudnell has died

But her work lives on. She created ‘A Historical Exhibit of Blacks in Palm Beach County,’ painstakingly documenting, with pens and paper, the lives and stories of communities of color on what became some 300 placards. The longtime educator died last week at 97 after a rich career that saw her teach primarily in a segregated PBC school system, who graduated from Florida A & M College in 1943 and who sponsored the dedication of Gaines Park in West Palm Beach (WPB) in 1961, among many things. Her only child, Earl Hudnell, said a memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday September 8 at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in WPB, where she had been a longtime member. With a four-page resume and lots of stories in the local media over the years–including this one, here, from 2012–Mrs. Hudnell was a community icon. What will become of her work? Stay tuned.
