In Hickory, artist Adele James McCarty and architect Ernie Sills make a sculptural archway and mural honoring the town’s legendary Ridgeview High School football team, who were undefeated state champs in 1964. Dubbed “The Untouchables,” these Black athletes united a segregated community with its remarkable winning streak, which remains unbroken to this day.
