Pinckney’s two daughters unveiled the portrait. His Wife Jennifer told the chamber, if he were here he’d call himself unworthy to be classified with such greatness.

Pinckney was among nine Charleston church members killed at Emanuel AME Church, last June, in a shooting.

The ceremony began at 4:00 p.m. and ended around 5pm inside the Senate Chamber.
