NC honors Julius Chambers for his work for state

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A Charlotte attorney who became a leader in the 1960s struggle for civil rights in North Carolina is being honored one more time after his death.

Julius Chambers on Tuesday became the second recipient of the state’s Spirit of North Carolina Award.

The award is given to high-achieving state employees who have mentored others in the pursuit of excellence. North Carolina State University women’s basketball coach Kay Yow was the award’s first recipient in 2007.

Chambers opened the state’s first integrated law practice in 1964 and in 1971 the firm won a key school busing case against Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. Chambers also ran his college alma mater as chancellor of North Carolina Central University from 1993 to 2001.

Chambers died in August.
