At 9:05 pm on June 17, 2015, a 21-year-old white supremacist murdered nine churchgoers and wounded five others attending a prayer meeting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. Journalist Herb Frazier, historian Dr. Bernard Edward Powers Jr., and South Carolina Poet Laureate Marjory Wentworth will share reflections from their book ''We Are Charleston: Tragedy and Triumph at Mother Emanuel'' in a powerful discussion of history, race, faith, and forgiveness.

This is the first event in the 2019 Friends of the Library Sunset Signature Series sponsored by the Heart of North Carolina Visitors Bureau, the City of Asheboro and the Friends of the Randolph County Public Library.
