President Obama delivered a eulogy for Reverend and state Senator Clementa Pinckney, who was one of nine victims in the June 17, 2015, shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. He called Mr. Pinckney a man of God who lived by faith and persevered to help provide a better life for others. He also commented on the Confederate flag and warned against betraying everything Mr. Pinckney stood for by failing to address the “uncomfortable truths about the prejudice that still infects our society.” President Obama ended by talking about the power of grace and then leading the audience in singing “Amazing Grace” and reading the names of the nine who were killed.

Before the president’s remarks begin about three hours into the program, the service included musical interludes by the choir and several speeches in Mr. Pinckney’s honor. close
