I was shocked and saddened on hearing of the passing of Attorney Chambers. I have followed his career and all the wonderful things he accomplished in the civil rights arena. I met him through his brother as he was about to graduate from UNC's Law School in l962 (I typed his last paper for him), and found him to be a strong, yet gentle personality. We will all miss him! God's blessings to the family.

Prayerfully,

Julius Chambers defended my Aunt Judge Judith M Daniels as she persuaded her goal in representing the people of Robeson County. Julius Chambers was always on the battlefield for injustice for the poor and voiceless.

When I think about how equality came to pass in Charlotte I automatically think on Mr. Chambers, what a great man of honor, am very proud to have lived to see him in action. May the peace of God sustain you during this time.

I had the pleasure of attending NCCU when Mr. Chambers was the chancellor. I am honored to have shared his presence! May God Bless your family during this time.

Growing up in a Charlotte Observer family in the 1950s and '60s, we would often hear the names of a broad array of political, business, educational and journalistic leaders in and around the Queen City.

But it didn't take long to learn that when you heard the name of Julius Chambers, then that definitely had something to do with the major developing subject of civil rights.

Even when I moved to Durham to cover city and county government for the Durham Herald in 1970, I became aware of the significant fact that Julius Chambers had been there previously as a promising student at North Carolina Central. Then years later he would return for a leadership "curtain call" as chancellor of NCCU.

But then folks around the Triangle region of North Carolina also knew of "Chambers" in his capacity as a much respected faculty member of the UNC Law School in Chapel Hill.

So even though I was away from my Charlotte hometown more of my life than I would have preferred, one thing's for sure: the civil rights leadership legacy of Julius Chamber forged a broad path in the movement for individual opportunity and social progress all across North Carolina and beyond the borders of this state.

In these days, therefore, it is understandable and natural that an abundance of gratitude and appreciation is being extended from so many quarters to the Chambers family as well as to his dedicated circle of professional friendships.
