Memorial Plans for Mother Emanuel

September 25, 2018 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Aimee Crouch

Three years ago, the people of Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church, the city of Charleston, and our entire state, mourned the tragic deaths of nine parishioners.  As the church celebrated the 200th anniversary of its joining the A.M.E. church, a plan was unveiled by Michael Arad, the architect who designed the 9/11 Memorial. Arad hopes the eventual memorial will give visitors to this historic sanctuary a designated place to mourn…and to remember.

The next step in the process is raising an estimated $15 million needed to build the memorial before breaking ground.
