This week: a documentary honoring Julius Chambers


The Harvey B. Gantt Center will screen a documentary this week about the life and work of Julius Chambers, the late civil rights lawyer.

Produced by veteran journalist Steve Crump, “Julius Chambers: A Life of Service, Courage, and Conviction,” examines Chambers’ contributions toward fighting racial discrimination, including his landmark court cases against school segregation and employment discrimination.

Crump began reporting at WBTV News in 1984 and is known for his Emmy Award-winning documentaries tackling subjects ranging from Apartheid in South Africa to civil rights in the American South.

The Gantt Center event is scheduled for Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free.
