The Robinson Family: Three Generations of Service and Leadership
Judson Robinson III
Judson W. Robinson III represents the third generation of his family dedicated to improving Houston’s Black community. His grandfather, a businessman, community leader, and activist known as “Big Jud,” was a catalyst for change in the city. His father, Judson Jr., continued in Big Jud’s footsteps, becoming the first Black American elected to the Houston City Council. Judson III has carried on the family legacy, first as a councilman, and later, as President of the Houston Area Urban League.
