Rev. Sharon Risher's rescheduled talk at CofC announced
Reverend Sharon Washington Risher will be hosting a talk in the McAlister Suite of TD Arena at the College of Charleston.
The free program will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 31.
Risher is the daughter of the late Ethel Lee Lance, one of the nine parishioners killed in the Emanuel A.M.E church shooting on June 17, 2015.
Risher was originally supposed to be speaking at the College of Charleston on January 17, but had it cancelled due to snow in Charlotte, N.C causing flights to get cancelled.
Since Risher’s mother was killed she has been outspoken about the nation’s gun laws. Risher is actually one of the national spokespersons for the grassroots advocacy groups, Everytown and Moms Demand Gun Sense.
This talk is a part of CofC’s celebration of Black History Month.
CofC says Risher’s speech will be focused on “Addressing Race through a Loving Lens”.
