After the integration of Charlotte schools in 1957, many whites showed their objection by refusing to allow their children to ride school buses with black children.

CLARENCE EVERETT LIGHTNER  (1921 – 2002)

Born into slavery in Raleigh, he became a journalist, educator, historian, and voice of the African-American community in North Carolina.

GOLDEN ASRO FRINKS  (1920 – 2004)
Leader in the Civil Rights Movement in North Carolina who organized protests around the country while working as a field secretary for the SCLC. Jailed 87 times for civil disobedience and often referred to as "the great agitator."
