Comment and analysis on all things Charlotte

RIP Roy Montgomery

Roy Laine Montgomery, the last survivor of 28 African-American soldiers falsely convicted in connection with the lynching of an Italian POW in 1944 at Fort Lawton, WA, has passed away at the age of 91 in Chicago.

And what you ask does this have to do with Charlotte? Montgomery is the grandfather of Kendall Gill, who played for the Charlotte Hornets in the 1990s.
