LRU presents Reverend Sharon Risher: A Charleston Daughter Speaks

Lenoir-Rhyne University's Lineberger Center will present Reverend Sharon Risher: A Charleston Daughter Speaks, on Thursday, April 6 at 7 p.m. in Grace Chapel.

Risher lost her mother, two cousins, and a friend, after a self-confessed white supremacist killed them and five other people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC, on June 17, 2015. Following the tragic incident, Risher began speaking on coping with loss, gun violence, hate, racism, forgiveness, and finding a path to peace.
