Abstract:
Part 10 of the Story of Charlotte series, \"Fights for Independence,\" covers 1940s through early 1960s Charlotte.

Following the war, racial tensions heightened and the Civil Rights Movement emerged as local leaders like Harry Golden and Reginald Hawkins advocated for integration in recreational areas, restaurants, and schools.
