Statue project

Mission statement

To honor the contribution of Judge J. Waties Waring to the establishment of civil rights for all people by erecting a statute of him in a prominent place in Charleston, South Carolina.


The following is a general timeline for the committee working to realize a statue honoring Judge Waring:

  • March 2012: Select a sculptor;
  • Work with the sculptor to choose a design;
  • Raise funds to pay for the casting of the statue;
  • Manufacture the statue;
  • Install and dedicate the statue, perhaps before the end of 2013.
