The shootings at Charleston's Mother Emanuel AME Church in 2015 shocked the nation and the world.  Join the authors of this moving book as they take us on a journey that includes history of slavery in North Carolina, the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Movement and the present day as well as the founding of the African Methodist Episcopal Churches in the South, and the role they have played in holding together the black community and leading its members to equal rights.  All three of these authors are Charlestonians, and from their bios are clearly leaders in the city and even in the AME church.   A great takeaway from this touching saga is the power of forgiveness and its lesson for the world.
