President Obama and Vice Prez Joe Biden will be in South Carolina this Friday (June 26) to deliver the eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney at his funeral. Unfortunately, Pickney is one of the people who passed away during the Charleston shooting. Obama and his wife personally knew him and other church staffers on a personal level. Mr. President is returning to Charleston after 8 years, and will be speaking in front of Pickney’s family, friends, and supporters.
The funeral will take place at 11 a.m. on June 26 at TD Arena (College of Charleston) and then afterwards they will head to St. James AME Church of Marion for the burial.
