Charleston and Its Aftermath on Election Day

Yesterday was the first day of jury selection in the trial of Dylan Roof. You remember him, don’t you? He’s the one who killed 9 church people at Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, SC last year.

There’s not much I can say right now, but I thought I would point this out. It was a panel discussion put on by Yale three months after the killings.  The moderator is David Blight, history professor at Yale and the director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance & Abolition.
