The Introduction provides a brief summary of the life of Julius Chambers. Born in rural North Carolina in the middle of the Great Depression, Chambers would overcome numerous obstacles to become the nation's foremost civil rights litigator in the generation after Thurgood Marshall. Chambers built the nation's first enduring racially integrated law firm in Charlotte, North Carolina, and, working closely with the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, he and his partners brought landmark civil rights suits that pushed federal civil rights law to its high-water mark by the early to mid-1970s.
