Charleston church reopens in triumph over 'Devil' massacre

Parishioners sing during the Sunday service at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 21, 2015, four days after a mass shooting that claimed nine livesThe historic black South Carolina church where a white gunman murdered nine African Americans held its first service since the massacre on Sunday, an emotional gathering celebrating the lives of those slain. Several hundred congregants, some tearful, packed the Emanuel African American Episcopal Church for a service led by visiting clergy because the congregation’s pastor was among those killed by a young white supremacist. The service offered still-grieving Charleston — in another era, the American capital of the transatlantic slave trade — a chance to mark what many argued was its triumph in thwarting the shooter’s reported aim to foment racial hatred.
