CBC Chair Butterfield to Visit Two AME Churches Tomorrow to Express Condolences to “Charleston Nine”

 

WASHINGTON, DC —  Tomorrow, Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01), Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), will visit St. Joseph’s African Methodist Episcopal Church and Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church, both in Durham, North Carolina, to express condolences to the “Charleston Nine” and the larger AME community.

 

Congressman Butterfield will bring remarks to St. Joseph’s AME Church at 8:00 AM and Emmanuel AME Church at 10:00 AM. 

 

Butterfield said, “It is difficult to comprehend that a house of worship, known for joy and tolerance, could become a scene of hate and tragedy.  My deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences are with the families of the nine parishioners who lost their lives to cowardly and despicable violence.”
