Today, Rev. and state Senator Clementa Pinckney will be laid to rest at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC at 11 a.m. on Friday June 26. His funeral will also broadcast live from the TD Arena at the College of Charleston. President Barack Obama will deliver the eulogy.

Pinckney was one of the nine victims who was fatally shot during bible study by a despicable human being who we won’t even dignify with a name. The 41-year-old was the pastor of Emanuel AME Church and he leaves behind a loving wife and two daughters.
