Not sure what to say?

It is hard to believe that five years have passed without you. Your light shines within during this time of darkness for this country you loved and made better.

Your legacy is one of which we can all be proud. You are etched in our memory like a beautiful dream. Thank you for your efforts and dedication to so many meaningful causes on behalf of us all. Sincerely, Barbara Lyon Hudgins - NCCU Class of '59

You are missed so much, so often and so much more with each passing day. Thinking of you on your 80th.

Julius Chambers filed and tried Coppedge vs. Franklin County, one of the cases that resulted in the down fall of Freedom of Choice,North Carolina's legal barrier to desegregation of it' public schools.Mr Chambers was quietly brilliant. He was was brave. He won the case and my admiration and respect.When the American Bar Association decided to write a major article in 2004 on the unsung legal hero of school desegregation I did not hesitate-I recommended Julius because he was the clear choice....

This exceptional man was an accomplished scholar and soooooo COURAGEOUS in the early days of the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. His relentless drive as a attorney no other could match. THANKS FOR ONE'S HARD WORK.......RIP

Remembering your quiet genius and finding comfort in memories of your gentle encouragement.. Your soul lives on. Happy 79th.

Thinking about and missing you on what would have been your 78th birthday.

You continue to be loved deeply and missed tremendously. I hold you in my heart forever.
