Charleston Airport Honors Church Massacre Victims With Art Exhibit

The Charleston International Airport has opened an exhibit in remembrance of the nine parishioners killed and five others wounded during bible study at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

In the airport's Central Hall, two five-foot-high stained glass panes separated by a glass partition show the church with nine white doves and a cross. Encased in glass in the center of the exhibit, lay a Bible open to Mark 4:13-20, the very passage of scripture that the bible study group was reading when white supremacist Dylann Roof began his massacre. A closed bible belonging to Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was killed in the shooting, is placed beside it.
