Charleston Daughter: The Reverend Sharon Risher

The Rev. Sharon Washington Risher was catapulted into the limelight after a shooting at the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17, 2015. Her beloved mother, church sexton Ethel Lee Lance, was killed, along with eight others, including two cousins and a childhood friend. Join us for a discussion on Rev. Risher’s experience with gun violence, racism and hate in America — as well as her path to forgiveness and hope for tomorrow.
