This year will mark the 5th anniversary of the tragic death of nine black churchgoers at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. As the state grapples with how to stop hate-motivated violence, the church and grieving family members seek to heal through the radical act of forgiveness. Also, we talk with Betty Bonwell, a Charleston voter, about an issue that's important to her: flooding. In 2019, Charleston flooded an average of one of nearly every five days. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Feb. 27, 2020, full broadcast.
