In 1972, I wrote civil rights attorney Julius Chambers seeking the opportunity to meet with him as I was doing historical research on Charlotte and specifically wanted him to share information about the Swann v. Board of Education case.
Chambers did not know me from Adam’s house cat. I shared that I would be in the Charlotte area in the summer. Chambers met with me and graciously and generously shared his time and his views on school desegregation in Charlotte.
I am indebted to Chambers. I join others in mourning his passing.
