Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church
A day after the Pittsburgh shooting, Sunday's sermon at the Charleston, South Carolina, church reflected on its own experience with gun violence.
Members of Mother Emanuel are not going to let tragedy stop them from continuing to welcome all.
The First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs may join other mass shooting sites that have sought new beginnings after tragedy.
The court-appointed attorneys are working with Roof, who killed nine people in a Charleston church in 2015, to appeal a federal death sentence.
"I ... pray that I will find the means to convey the beauty that I’ve seen here in Charleston.”
Roof was charged in state court with murdering nine African-American parishioners as they closed their eyes in prayer at a Bible study session.
He is due to enter his plea on April 10.
Joey Meek failed to tell the FBI what he knew after the deadly hate crime and encouraged others not to call police.
"Go back to hell, black women," the graffiti said.
Federal prosecutors said Roof drove about 20 miles to Branch AME Church.
