The National Black Church Initiative, a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churched comprise of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans is decrying the nine murders of Black church goers as hatred and a violent affront on Christ’s Church.

This horrendous act follows a litany of brutal attacks on African Americans over the past several years across the United States.

NBCI President Rev. Anthony Evans is travelling to South Carolina to personally direct 682 churches on security measures for congregants and families. The dangerous unknowns of the murders, their intent and their allies still remain, and allies must rally together against those who are intent on silencing the Black church and its members.

“What is this world coming to? Why do they hate Black Christians?” asked Rev. Evans. “I do not understand why Dylann Roof of South Carolina hates black people.

“We are convinced that Roof’s killing spree was purely because these innocent victims loved Christ and were Black,” he continued. “Roof likely assassinated Rev. Clements Pinckney specifically because he is a preacher of the gospel and a civil rights leader. The Black church was the specific target for this horrendous act, chosen because of what it represents for all oppressed people.”
