U.S. Reps. Jim Clyburn, D-Columbia, and John Lewis, D-Ga., and Sen. Tim Scott, R-North Charleston, are leading the annual Faith and Politics Institute pilgrimage aimed at giving congressional leaders access to the role southern states played in the civil rights movement. Speaking to reporters Friday at the church, Clyburn said the trip to South Carolina "would give my fellow Congress people an understanding ... maybe even some answers to the question so many people are asking: How could those family members, having just experienced such a horrific act, stand before the world, and say to the accused perpetrator of that act, 'I forgive you.'"
