As the anniversary of the tragic shooting at Emanuel AME Church approaches, a new online exhibit has been created to detail the outpouring of support for Mother Emanuel in the aftermath of violence. In partnership with the church, the Lowcountry Digital History Initiative, Lowcountry Africana, and the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture have collected hundreds of photographs depicting vigils, marches, and protests that took place after the shooting and highlighting memorabilia received from all over the world.
