Remembering Clementa Pinckney

Remembering Clementa Pinckney

One of the nine victims of a hate crime that occurred at Mother Emmanuel, Clementa Pinckney was a pastor and Senator in the South Carolina Senate, as the youngest elected black member of that organization.

Jason Horowitz researched and wrote about the killings for the New York Times, and assembled a profile of the regular 12 hour work days of Mr. Pinckney’s two careers. Much of the profile had to be cut.

From the posting:

A good part of what I learned found its way into our account of that awful day, but because the article took in the totality of the events and players, much did not. Mr. Pinckney struck me as a remarkable politician and man that readers would want to know more about, so I wanted to offer this extended look at his last day here.

You can read the profile in it’s entirety on Medium.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
