McDonald Hughes was the principal of Druid High School for 32 years as well as an advocate for African American equality in the public school system. He was the voice of secondary school children all over the state whose blue-collar families never had an opinion in local government policy.
As an active member of the Tuscaloosa National Issues Forum, Hughes urged Tuscaloosa County to look at national issues on the community level and lend a listening-ear to those who felt oppressed.
