To the Hood family,

So sorry for your loss. Please be encouraged by Is. 25:8 where God promises to swallow up death forever and we know this is will be a reality becasue Titus 1:2 states that he is a God who cannot lie. My condolences to you all during this difficult time.

Thank You, Mr. James Hood! There were those who would say, as a black youth of The South during the era of segregation, "you have a better chance, walking on the moon, than being educated alongside your white counterpart." Yet, like a few others of the day, he preserved. Only a teenager at the time, Mr. Hood, carried the hope of a generation and future generations, as he symbolically and literally, climbed the steps of The University of Alabama. His effort to purse a better life through education may have begun as "his story." Nonetheless, triumph through overcoming and the passage of time, has made it "history". His personal dream to have an equitable education, woke-up a Nation from the nightmare of segregation. Fortitude, in the face of mob ignorance, evolved from the individual struggle of a youth, to the collective aspirations of minorities throughout America and her posterity. Mr. James Hood, took "One small step by man. One giant leap for Mankind." And in taking that step, he let minorities everywhere realize that they can "Shoot For The Moon", because the journey of a righteous youth may place them amongst the stars! Again,Thank You Mr. James Hood!!!
January 25, 2013
My thoughts and prayers are with the Hood family in this time of sorrow. One of the first things I did when I arrived at University of Alabama as a student in 1975 was to visit Foster Auditorium where Dr. Hood made his courageous stand many years earlier.

I had the great pleasure meeting James back in the 90's when he came to complete his Doctor's degree. He participated in a number of New College activities and we shared an office in Carmichael for almost 2 years while he completed his academic work. We taught a class together and I got to know James and learned much about him and from him. My son Bobby and I were honored to call James friend. I know that completing the degree was a great achievement and a source of great satisfaction and accomplishment for him and the final chapter in his courageous life that began in the Door of Foster and ended on the Colosseum stage being hooded for his Doctoral Degree. I am deeply saddened that James died so young though I had heard he had medical problems in recent years. My son and I cherish those few years we were able to enjoy our friendship together. As we say in the Jewish tradition "May his memory be a blessing for his family and all who loved him" Jerry Rosenberg, PhD and Bobby Rosenberg or as James used to say---Dr. J and Mr. Bobby
January 23, 2013
On the first day James ate lunch in the Paty Hall Dining Hall at the University of Alabama, I joined him at his table where he was sitting alone. I was scared so much I couldn't eat my lunch. I can imagine how James felt. We became friends while he was at 'Bama. I greatly admire his courage. He was at that time, and is now, an important part of my life. I am sorry that he is gone.
January 23, 2013
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Hood did a very brave act applying to the university. Can only imagine what he must have went thru to face such opposition. It really does inspire me to appreciate the education I have access to today compared to those that didn't. I'm so sorry for ur lost.

To the James Hood Family: I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Hood. Although I did not know him personally, I and many others were able to obtain a quality education in the South due to his heroic (along with the late Ms. Malone) and legendary stance against the Alabama right in 1963. I sincerely hope that time and prayer will help ease the pain of his departure and rest assure that he will never be forgotten.

Condolences to the family. I too was in college in the early sixties and it was clear that persons of color were not really welcome there either. However, I did not have to battle bigots, hoses, ax handles and dogs to enter. My hat is off to Mr. Hood for all that has come out of the struggle allowing our youong people to get the same education as anyone else in this country. His legacy will forever be remembered. I can't help but think about the juxtaposition of his struggle on upcoming events in the next three days that demonstrate this powerful legacy (Dr. MLK birthday holiday and the the inauguration of the nation's first black President to a second term as President of these United States of America. What a legacy!
