Charleston Is A City With Character And A Soul

Helen Hill is CEO of Explore Charleston. As a life long Charlestonian, Helen has seen the city grow to become a prime visitor destination.  She joins Paul to talk about her insights, and the tragedy at Mother Emmanuel church in 2015.

Rather than suffer the fate of so many other cities with unrest, the entire community followed the lead of the families involved in the tragedy and not only forgave  but worked actively to help the community. It was a defining act of forgiveness when the call might easily be for vengeance.
