About the Project

After Reverend Sharon Risher’s mother was killed by a white supremacist in the historically black Mother Emanuel AME Church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, on June 17, 2015, she found herself struggling to cope. Though many in her church community were soon able to forgive the killer, Risher was not. 

In this short documentary, viewers follow Risher’s journey as she begins her healing process, turning to social activism and working nationwide to speak out against racism and gun violence. 

The film is available to watch in full on The New Yorker's website.
