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.
