This one-hour town hall meeting explores the many issues propelled into public discourse after a white gunman shot and killed nine African-American parishioners in Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in June 2015. Gwen Ifill, PBS NEWSHOUR co-anchor and managing editor, and moderator and managing editor of WASHINGTON WEEK, moderated the program, which was taped on September 19 at the Circular Congregational Church, just blocks from the site of the shootings, before a live audience of more than 250 community members.
