A Time of Unrest

Record #:
Part 11 of the Story of Charlotte series, \"A Time of Unrest,\" covers the history of integration, racial unrest, urban renewal, and the passage of new liquor laws in Charlotte during the 1960s and 1970s. Points of racial contention mentioned include the Shrine Bowl, Swann v. Board of Education, and the midnight bombings of four civil rights leaders' homes in November of 1965. As the city began to expand, racial tension from urban renewal arose, and outlying neighborhoods fought unsuccessfully to avoid being engulfed by the growing metropolis.
