Jacksonville civil rights activist Ben Frazier honored by city council

Honoring the late Jacksonville civil rights icon and journalist Ben Frazier.

On Tuesday night, Frazier’s daughter along with members of the Northside Coalition gathered in City Hall as council members presented a resolution to Frazier’s family.

Frazier died last month after a battle with cancer.

He was the president of the Northside Coalition and was a familiar and outspoken face at council meetings.

Frazier’s daughter who is now leading the Northside Coalition spoke on her father’s behalf.

“Thank you for honoring my father,” Kelly Frazier said.

Kelly Frazier also urged the city council to hold community discussions on Confederate monuments in Jacksonville, which she said her father had hoped to do.
