Unexampled Courage The Blinding of Sgt. Isaac Woodard and the Awakening of President Harry S. Truman and Judge J. Waites Waring
Date of this Version
Court Review - Volume 55
The Honorable Richard Gergel currently presides in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of South Carolina. In his recent book, Unexampled Courage, Judge Gergel pays tribute to the essential and sometimes controversial role that one of his predecessor jurists, the Honorable J. Waites Garing, played in ending the legal segregation of America’s schools. In doing so, Gergel reminds us of our recent history and challenges us to think critically about our proper role as judicial officers.
