520 "A deeply moving work of narrative nonfiction on the
tragic shootings at the Mother Emanuel AME church in
Charleston, South Carolina. 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's
massacre of nine innocents during their closing prayer
horrified the nation. Two days later, some relatives of
the dead stood at Roof'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'
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'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's wake. The two adult survivors of the
shooting begin to make sense of their lives again. Rifts
form between some of the victims' 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"--|cProvided by publisher.
