Readers will see a story on today’s front page by Senior Writer Martin L. Cahn about a new initiative called the “Welcome Table SC.” The project is an interesting and innovative racial reconciliation effort. It was an ongoing project of the late John Rainey and it is now coordinated by Charles Traynor “Bud” Ferrillo, a long-time friend of Rainey’s and a fellow social activitist. Ferrillo is the author/director of “Corridor of Shame,” the documentary which brought national attention to the sorry state of South Carolina’s public school system and especially the terrible discrepancies in many of South Carolina’s schools in poor, rural areas compared to others in more affluent areas.
