In Honor of Black History Month

In honor of Black History month, pictured above is Charlie Scott, North Carolina's first black basketball player (the second in the ACC) shown between Dick Grubar (former Greensboro City Councilman) and 6' 10" Rusty Clark from Fayetteville, NC.  They are pictured after a Final Four win in Los Angeles in 1968.  The UNC basketball program, and in particular legendary Dean Smith, like Jackie Robinson for the nation, were very important parts of moving civil rights forward in the South. God Bless all of the bold and courageous pioneers of civil rights.
