    S01 Episode 8: This is not the end

    In our final episode of season one, we address the realities that these Kairos moments brought to Charleston and what work is still yet to be done not only in our Southern city, but in the nation at large. What invisible lines still tear us apart? How can we fight hate after the shooting at Emanuel AME? Can relationships between communities and police be repaired?
