ChrisSingleton's young life changed in a horrifying instant
in 2015, when his mother was shot to death along with eight others
in the Mother Emmanuel Church shooting in Charleston, South
Carolina. Singleton made
headlines nationwide in the days after the tragedy when he
announced he had forgiven the shooter – a white supremacist who
targeted the predominantly African-American congregation in the
hopes of starting a race war.
Singleton has dedicated himself
since then to emphatically, dramatically denying the killer’s
twisted hope – speaking coast to coast about the power of
forgiveness, inclusion and getting to know, understand and love
those who look and think differently than we do.
