Some historical events are etched in our minds by date, or at least by the dates when we traditionally remember them — December 25th for Christmas, July 4th for Independence Day, but how about June 17th? That’s when nine members of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, one of the oldest black congregations in South Carolina and possibly in the United States, were fatally shot by a white gunman.
