Dr. Hill serves the wider community in the greater Kansas City area as a member of the Boards of Directors of The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, The Mayor’s Summer Youth Employment Commission, and Jewish Vocational Services.  Since 1993, Dr. Hill has been a co-host of the renowned Sunday morning radio call-in show, "Religion on the Line," on KCMO-Talk Radio 710AM.
