Barack Obama sings Amazing Grace during Clementa Pinckney eulogy

June 27, 2015

US correspondent for Fairfax Media

On this day Obama spoke directly to mourning African Americans, addressing them in the language and cadence of a preacher.

And then, flanked by African American clergy, he led a rendition of Amazing Grace, the hymn written by a reformed English slaver that has become the emblematic African American spiritual symbol.

It was a powerful act of solidarity by a president who has been subject to years of coded racist barbs.
