Emmanuel AME
, the historic black church in Charleston that was the site of a massacre earlier this week, is having its first service since the shooting this morning. See above for livestream. 

The church was off limits to members until yesterday because it was a crime scene. Hundreds are in attendance today, and it is a diverse crowd (MSNBC reporter Trymaine Lee notes that Rick Santorum and "Black Lives Matter" activist Deray Mckesson are sitting in the same pew). Police officers are on hand guarding the worshipers.
