Summary
On June 17, 2015, twelve members of the historically black Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina welcomed a young white man to their evening Bible study. He arrived with a pistol, 88 bullets, and hopes of starting a race war. Dylann Roof<U+2019>s massacre of nine innocents during their closing prayer horrified the nation. Two days later, some relatives of the dead stood at Roof<U+2019>s hearing and said, “I forgive you.” That grace offered the country a hopeful ending to an awful story. But for the survivors and victims<U+2019> families, the journey had just begun. In Grace Will Lead Us Home, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jennifer Berry Hawes provides a definitive account of the tragedy<U+2019>s aftermath. With unprecedented access to the grieving families and other key figures, Hawes offers a nuanced and moving portrait of the events and emotions that emerged in the massacre<U+2019>s wake. The two adult survivors of the shooting begin to make sense of their lives again. Rifts form between some of the victims<U+2019> families and the church. A group of relatives fights to end gun violence, capturing the attention of President Obama. And a city in the Deep South must confront its racist past. This is the story of how, beyond the headlines, a community of people begins to heal. An unforgettable and deeply human portrait of grief, faith, and forgiveness, Grace Will Lead Us Home is destined to be a classic in the finest tradition of journalism
