Join Rev. Anthony Thompson in a crucial conversation about the Mother Emanuel tragedy on June 17, 2015 and the possibilities of racial understanding and reconciliation. This book talk is facilitated by Charleston Illumination Project founder Margaret Seidler.

The story is heartbreaking, coming to you in his words, of his wife Myra's murder in a senseless and terrifying act of pure and calculated hate. The book offers more - it reveals how Rev. Thompson forgave the young racist man, then helps you explore how to use forgiveness as a path to breakdown cultural and racial differences. The hope is that Called to Forgive will bring you an eye-opening understanding of forgiveness and its role in creating unity and peace.
