Charlie Scott: 'It was more of a relief I didn't fail'


Charlie Scott accepts his place in history, but he had no intention of becoming the first African-American to earn an athletic scholarship at North Carolina. The year was 1966, a heated time for race relations in the South. “Coach [Dean] Smith never really talked about integration,” Scott said of his recruitment. “He always talked about me being part of the team.” (WRAL Sports Fan)
