New Science Center Auditorium–202 Calhoun St., Charleston
Tuesday, September 13, 2016

6:00pm – 8:00pm
Free and Open to the Public 

Published this June, We Are Charleston not only recounts the events of the tragic shooting on June 17, 2015, but also offers a history lesson that reveals a deeper look at the suffering, triumph, and even the ongoing rage of the people who formed Mother Emanuel A.M.E. church and the wider denominational movement. Join authors Dr. Bernard Powers (College of Charleston), Herb Frazier and Marjory Wentworth for a conversation about the story of the “Emanuel Nine”, the history and legacy of the A.M.E. Church, and the tragedy that captured the attention of Charleston, the nation and indeed the world. Books will be available for purchase, and a signing will take place after the talk.
