Richard Gergel on ‘Unexampled Courage’

Richard M. Gergel of the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina spoke to Duke Law students on Nov. 11 about his new book, Unexampled Courage: The Blinding of Sgt. Isaac Woodard and the Awakening of President Harry S. Truman and Judge J. Waties Waring, which was released early this year. The book tells the story of a Southern judge’s critical role in early civil rights history.

Judge Gergel also participated in a Q&A session, moderated by ALI President David F. Levi, following the presentation.
