Angela Bassett Remembers The Charleston Shooting Victims

Angela Bassett took the stage at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night and remembered the nine victims of the Charleston church shooting in a moving speech about gun-control.

The award-winning actress called off the names of the nine victims who were gunned down during bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, 2015.

Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney, Cynthia Hurd, Sharhonda Coleman-Singleton, Tywanza Sanders, Myra Thompson, Ethel Lee Lance, Susie Jackson, Daniel Simmons, Depayne Middleton-Doctor…

We say their names, but that is not enough – is it?
