After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, nine African Americans lay dead, leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror. Featuring intimate interviews with survivors and family members, EMANUEL, from executive producers Stephen Curry and Viola Davis, is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.

One of Life's Miracles
18 June 2019 | by pammia-637-152524See all my reviews

This movie took the time to venture into the internal feelings of survivors of the Emanuel 9 shooting. Since it is a documentary it is carefully edited to make important yet unforgettable points without traumatizing the viewers. It lays a historical foundation, it tells the immediate trauma faced by the daughter of a victim, tt humanizes the victims and gave their lives value it tells the story of hate inbreed and born in the shooter who seeks maximum input, it tells how trust in God and your beliefs in Jesus allows a person to forgive and forgive with the same love of Jesus Christ. it tells how what could have been the match that lit a "race war" in the USA was extinguished.

The writer and editor did an excellent job highlighting important facts without being "in your face" graphic. A soft approach to a hard core situation. I gave it a 10 because I am hypersensitive and expected to boo hoo throughout -- instead I felt the grace of God in their lives of the survivors instead. A must see.
