In church where Pinckney’s voice resonates, a need to know more

Porter’s Chapel AME Church is more than a century old and no longer in use. The town of Port Royal and members of Jericho AME, the sister church of Porter’s Chapel, are working to save the structure for use as a town visitor’s center, museum or library. Meanwhile, church leadership is trying to record the history of the two churches, which includes a stop by late pastor Clementa Pinckney.
