Friday, June 19, 2015. New York City – On Wednesday, June 17, around 9pm, a shooting occurred at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in the town of Charleston, South Carolina. Suspect Dylann Storm Roof killed nine people.
Yesterday, June 18, a group of approximately 100 people gathered in Union Square in Manhattan, NYC, for a vigil for the people affected in Charleston, South Carolina. After Union Square, some people traveled to the First African Methodist Episcopal Church (First AME Church: Bethel) in Harlem for a prayer vigil. The Abyssinia Baptist Church had a prayer at 7pm, and then proceeded to march to First Bethel AME Church.
Activists of New York, says “Tears ran down the faces of activists at the vigil for African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church Massacre in Charleston, SC. The mass shooting of nine innocent people in South Carolina has rocked the nation. This act of terrorism is being investigated as a racially motivated hate crime. Black Americans are being gunned down and murdered at an alarming rate.”
According to the guardian, “Dylann Storm Roof walked up the 23 slate grey steps that led to the main entrance of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church and asked for the pastor. It was Wednesday, and that meant Bible study night.
Security cameras captured the slender 21-year-old dressed in dark trousers and a grey sweatshirt, with his hair cut into a distinctive bowl, entering the church by the main door.”
