As the threat of a financial default neared, the Senate approved compromise, bipartisan legislation to lift the debt ceiling with just days to spare.
On June 17th, 2015 a racist gunman opened fire inside the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, killing nine people.

Similar to Buffalo’s racist mass shooting on May 14th, 2022, the victims were in a place they felt safe, they were elders in the community, and the attack came after the gunman spent some time in the presence of the victims.

This tragedy not only ties our communities together, but it also can provide a roadmap for what healing looks like for a city that is just beginning its journey.

Don’t miss “Buffalo & Charleston: a Parallel Journey of Hope, Healing, & Reconciliation,” a special week of coverage on Buffalo, What’s Next? May 8th-12th and listen to a special Producer’s Picks episode May 5th that showcases the reporters’ experience of visiting Charleston.
