    I am the author of the book, “The People of Clarendon County”–A Play by Ossie Davis, & the Answer to Racism, in which Judge Waring figures importantly. I am also an oral historian of civil rights and have interviewed many unsung heroes, some of whom either knew Judge Waring or benefitted immensely from his courage. I learned in the course of my research that there was an African American little league team named Waring Warriors in Charleston. Other than the fond and proud recollections of several members of that team, I have been unable to find any documents, photos or news stories about Waring Warriors. Can you help? Documentation would be essential and I know there must be something out there in someone’s scrapbook or family album or news archive. Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Ms. Bernstein,

      Have you tried the folks at the Avery Institute at the College of Charleston?

      ON another note, let me know if you’re interested in crafting an op-ed column for my Charleston publication that talks about the Warriors and seeks information about them.
