We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.

To the family of Julius Chambers and the people of Charlotte,North Carolina,United States and the world. A great man,a warrior has passed and we all has all who love doing what right and just have lost a champion. May we honor his works and endeavors by rising up to meet the goals he set and fullfilling the races he laid out for us. By the grace of our creator may his light forever shine on us.

He was simply my hero.
August 09, 2013
I will never forget the kindness of Mr. Chambers as an employer. Hiring me right out of college and guiding me as he let me go along with him to various PAC meetings to support the local African-American candidates, I learned so much about activism and how working behind the scene is just as important as being in front of it. Thank you, Mr. Chambers.

I spent a lot of time with Dr. Chambers from 2008 until 2010. I met him as a stranger and we became really close really fast. I went from sitting in his office telling him about a case to meeting him on Saturdays and him leaving me in his office alone...he say "work on this and I'll be back to pick you up for lunch"...He was one of the most humble people I've ever met. I'm sorry for your loss but I'm happy to have met him...for he changed my life forever...

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,

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.

As a native Charlottean,I must say I am proud to have had Mr. Julius Chambers as one of the greatest leaders our city will ever have. Your niece Senetra and I graduated from the same high school, I graduated a year before her, but it was nice to know that I attended high school with the niece of such a prominent person. Thanks Mr. Chambers for all that you have done for us. We will truly miss you.

Sorry for your loss, heavens gain. I'm glad to have met Mr.. Chambers
August 08, 2013
As a member of a group of students on fellowship studying at Columbia University in 1991, we came upon the offices of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund while returning from another destination. We walked in, fully expecting to express a word of thanks for the work that the organization does and to continue on our way. As it were, Atty. Chambers was in the office that morning and stopped what he was doing, spoke with us, inquired about our studies, and gave us parting words of wisdom. He did not have to do this, as I am sure there were many things going on at the time. This simple kindness and many others over a lifetime speak volumes. Thank you for a lifetime of service and the example that you have set for us all as we strive upwards and onwards.
August 08, 2013
I did not know Mr. Chambers but reading his obituary in the New York Times, I was struck by his years of steady work to overturn restrictions on civil rights. His life was of the best of us and I hope his family can take courage from his achievements. Our country is better because of his struggle to right wrong.

Our condolences to the Chambers Family. In the Roanoke Valley {home of J.P. Stevens Mill} Julius was our "Champion for Justice". The quiet, unassuming, caring gentleman fought our battles in court and brought justice and hope to generations of families. Many of the lawyers and judges in the Roanoke Valley were inspired by Julius.

My family will always treasure the fond memories with Vivian and Julius over the years. May you both rest in peace!

August 07, 2013
A great loss. As a television reporter, I covered some of the civil rights battles fought by Julius Chambers in the late 60's and early 70's. I also got to know both he and his brother, Dr. Kenneth Chambers. I am profoundly moved by his passing.
August 07, 2013
Thank you!
August 07, 2013
Thank our good and great Lord for people like Mr. Chambers. Thanks to people like him, I grew up (late late 60's, 7o's, and 80's not even realizing that having friends that were black was once a controversial thing (until I was older and learned history). My friends and I were not hasseled or made to feel better than the other due to "old ways". God bless all who trailblazed the first mile, we have a long way to go in race relations, but we have come very far thanks to many Civil Rights era heroes!
August 07, 2013
To Dr. Kenneth Chambers, Judy, Derrick & the entire Chambers family:

August 06, 2013
Dr. Chambers was a cornerstone of equity and justice. Without his courage and fearless attitude to do simply what was right for all, is a testimony to his character and his life. God's speed Dr. Chambers. To the family, thank you for sharing the gift of your husband/father with the world. God bless and keep you.
August 06, 2013
I was deeply saddened by Mr. Chambers' death. Upon hearing the news, my mind went back to that first time I saw Mr. Chambers as I nervously sat across from him being interviewed for a secretarial position. What an awesome and distinguished man he was! I am so honored to have had the opportunity to work for him approximately 25 years - to be a small part in the struggles as he fought against racial discrimination. I remember him as an humble, down-to-earth man who cared deeply for his people. Derrick, Judy and Dr. Chambers, I extend my deepest sympathy and hope your wonderful memories of him will bring you comfort.Chambers' has fought the GOOD fight; he has finished his course and has now gone home to take to be w/the Lord and to be with as he would say "his better half". SO, I LIGHT A CANDLE FOR THIS FAITHFUL SERVANT TO ALL. STELLA DENNIS TUCKER

So many lives were made better because of his life's work. He was a man of heroic proportions.
August 06, 2013
My sincere and deepest condolences to the Chambers family. Chancellor Chambers was a jewel! As I recall the many days sitting in the NCCU Cabinet meetings, I can't help but laugh a little. Although soft spokened, he ALWAYS got his point across and always with a focus on what was best for the students and the university.

Whenever my daughter, Victoria (then 7 yrs old), would visit the campus and we encountered Chancellor Chambers, he took the time to talk with her about her dreams and her academic achievements. He made a big impact on her. Now at 27 yrs, she still remembers those times speaking with the Chancellor and she sends her condolences as well.

A fight well fought, Chancellor Chambers! You will be missed!
August 06, 2013
You inspired a generation of people to dream of what we never thought possible. My father held you in highest regards and asked his children to work just as hard for inclusion and justice. Thanks and rest in peace.

August 06, 2013
In the early 80s I had the privilege of trying a case opposite him in magistrate's court. He soundly defeated me. I learned more about being a lawyer from that experience than in three years of law school. He made us all proud to be members of the legal profession, and of the human race. I am so sorry for his too-early death.

Rest in Peace.

I had the chance to talk with Chambers in May 2012 while seeking counsel for a misdemeanor criminal charge. Yes, he demonstrated all the qualites that his law partners, Ferguson & Sumter, stated in Sunday's Charlotte Newspaper. I plan to give up my pro se role and go to law school to hopefully become a great attorney like him. May fond memories comfort the family.
August 05, 2013
I was sorry to read about the death of your loved one. It is always very painful emotionally to lose someone you care about. The GOD of heaven really cares about us. (1 Peter 5:6-7) That is why He has made provision for us to be able to see our loved ones again. I noticed Mr Chambers was in the justice system. Our Father is a just GOD. Deuteronomy 32:4 calls Him "the Rock" and says "all His ways are justice" He will be with during this sad time in your lives. You have my sincere condolences.

We have lost another one of the Great North Carolinians of the last fifty years! He and Bill Friday did so much to make us a better state.

I joined in an organization in 1980 that had a previous lawsuit against it that I had to get resolved.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Chambers and we were able to work through the issues in the utmost professional manner.

I always have admired him.
August 04, 2013
He came, gave his all and all, and moved on. What more could you ask of any man?
August 04, 2013
I send my condolences to the family of Dr. Julius Chambers. I had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Chambers when I attended NCCU for Undergrad. I can remember Mr. Chambers would say to me all the time "the older you are getting the more you look like for father and I know he is proud of you." To the Chambers family I thank Dr. Chambers for directing me an inner city youth from Connecticut to the Greatest HBCU North Carolina Central University. RIP Dr. Chambers and Thank you. God Bless

Mr. Chambers fought for justice and helped many to attain it. He must have known that Almighty God is a lover of justice and sought to imitate that quality. Isaiah 61:8; Psalms 37:28; Soon God will finish the fight and bring about world peace and then justice will reign. Isaiah 32:1; Isaiah 9:7. When that happens we will see Julius again. John 6:40. Heartfelt prayers are with the Chambers family.
August 04, 2013

Thank you for the sacrifice of sharing him with the community and the world. Mr. Chambers truly epitomized the notion of a servant leader, and the WORLD is a better place because he passed this way. May wonderful memories comfort your hearts and may God rest his soul.

Please know that very soon the things that Mr.Chamber fought for throughout the years for people will be fulfill by our Heavenly Father for he states He is a lover of righteousness and justice.- Psalms 35:3.

My heart was truly saddened when I heard of the passing of Dr. Chambers. First, I want to send my heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones. May God grant you comfort and peace in the same measure that he granted you the honor of having Dr. Chambers in your life.

I had the pleasure of having Dr. Chambers as an instructor in my final year of law school at North Carolina Central University School of Law.

Professor Chambers was so soft spoken that I would sit as close by him as possible during our seminar class, so as not to miss a thing he had to say.

Although I was quite excited then about taking the class with Dr. Chambers, it was not until I heard of his passing that I realized how blessed I am to have had that opportunity.

May God bless and rest his soul.
August 04, 2013
Mr. Chambers, thank you! Your inspiration and self-sacrifice will never be forgotten. You lived to make the world a better place for so many others and now it is time for you to receive your well-deserved eternal reward. Blessings to your family and loved ones and may the Good Lord give them the oil of joy for mourning, knowing you served well while you lived.
August 04, 2013

Julius Chambers was one of North Carolina's finest people and finest attorneys. He helped Dr. Hubert Eaton integrate much of Wilmington NC. Read Dr. Eaton's memoir "Every Man Should Try." And Mr. Chambers was actively working to bring his home state up to a high standard, until he drew his last breath.

Mr. Chambers was my 'teacher' (not just a prefessor) in law school and I worked on my first real case as a student under his direction. It was a seminar on civil rights litigation. That was in 1988, or so. It was an experience i still treasure. He was a wonderful man. My heart felt condolences to the family.
August 03, 2013
Mr. Chambers is a legend and a person worthy of great respect. Lawyers like myself are in awe at his accomplishments and find ourselves wondering if we could have worn his burdens with the grace and dignity that he did for so many years. Like so many, I was moved to tears to learn of his passing . We have lost a great man and my heart is heavy. May God , Bless and keep his family and friends.

Mr. Julius is resting. When he is awakened from his sleep, he will be happy to have the opportunity to live forever in a peaceful earthly paradise. Here the righteous from all nations will dwell forever. Psalms 37:29
August 03, 2013
I was personally a beneficiary of his good deeds and hard work. First, as a product of the segregated school system Charlotte during the late 60's and 70's. Secondly, as an alumnus of NCCU, where Mr. Chambers served as Chancellor. He helped guide our alma mater to another level. Thank you Mr. Chambers for your devotion and commitment. My prayers to his family.
August 03, 2013
To his surviving daughter...I am so sorry for your loss. Your fathers legend will live on forever.

Julius Chambers led a very inspiring and dedicated life! It is painful to read of the difficulties of his early life, especially the man who cheated his father of the money intended for Julius to go to college. But in the spirit of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, he was a peaceful and non-vengeful man. This state and this country were blessed by his life!
August 03, 2013
Julius Chambers was one of the great figures in the history of Charlotte of the past half-century. A man of tremendous moral character and personal strength, he helped the city navigate the transition to a more just public school system. All of us who live or who have lived in Charlotte owe him a debt of gratitude.

August 03, 2013
We have lost a giant. I was part of the first graduating class in Char-Meck to go all 12 years with court ordered bussing. I attribute a lot of my indignation against what is wrong to my bus rides through a part of Charlotte I never knew existed on my way to Lincoln Heights Elem. and even as a ten year old, I knew what I saw was not right. I would not be the man I am today without Mr. Chambers.
August 03, 2013
