*A service is being held at Emanuel AME in memory of the nine parishioners killed one year ago in a racially-motivated shooting during Bible study.
A communitywide memorial service remembering the victims was held earlier today at the College of Charleston’s TD.
Today’s gatherings are among about two dozen events marking the anniversary of the shootings during the coming days.
Wesley Theological Seminary on Friday announced the establishment of a degree program to honor Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was working on a thesis dealing with his dual role as public servant and minister when he was killed.
