Hall of Fame wait lifted off of Charlie Scott’s shoulders

Charlie Scott has been overshadowed for decades, despite his remarkable story. He was the first African-American scholarship athlete at UNC, and a member of the 1968 US Olympic team, witnessing firsthand the protests of track athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos. Scott, 69, recalls a meeting called by USOC president Avery Brundage, who was furious at Smith and Carlos. (Boston Globe)
