Country music icon Charlie Daniels passed away last week.
It’s possible that none of us would know his name if not for a profound act of grace.
In 1958, a 21 year old Charlie Daniels was working at the same job where his father had worked.
He had been trained by a fellow named Louis Frost, who had trained his father as well.
That year, business started slowing down, and management decided they would have to let somebody go.
Although Louis Frost was vastly more experienced, he was black; Charlie Daniels, who was white.
The bosses decided to fire Louis, and keep Charlie.
Watch to find out what happened next.
