Families of shooting victims lead Days of Grace rally
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The pastor of a church where nine African-Americans were killed says he knows good works can come from the tragedy.
The Rev. Norvel Goff said during a rally Saturday at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church that justice will ultimately triumph over evil.
Goff marched through Charleston with the fathers of Tywanza Sanders and Walter Scott. Sanders was killed at Goff’s church by a gunman who authorities say was motivated by racial hatred. Scott was an unarmed black man shot and killed while running from a white officer in North Charleston.
The march was organized by a labor union, which also plans a rally as part of its Days of Grace Labor Day ceremonies.
