Integrating the Charleston Police Force

By Eugene Frazier, Sr.

The civil rights era in the United States was a turbulent time of struggle and protest, with groups making history all across the nation. African American police officers in Charleston were immersed in their own battle to integrate local law enforcement agencies. These pioneers endured hatred and resentment within the department and sometimes from those they were sworn to protect. Lieutenant Eugene Frazier, Detective George Gathers and others fought the establishment while climbing the ranks to solve some of the toughest crimes that Charleston has ever seen. Join Frazier as he recounts the true stories of those who fought for equality.
