12:15 pm
victims' families. at this hour the metropolitan a.m.e. church in northwest washington is holding a prayer vigil in memory of the charleston victims. ministers are calling on people who abhor violence to come together and pray for both the victims and the nation. the service of music and prayer lasts until 1:00 p.m. we just spoke with surae there. certainly a somber indication no doubt a somber mood on this juneteenth. that is a day typically made up of dancing, music, celebration of freedom, sacrifice and progress. here to discuss both topics with us today, historian and author c.r. giks. i preesh -- c.r. gibbs. appreciate you sitting down with us. talk about the history of the church in charleston. that goes back even beyond that. >> we can trace the history of mother emanuel back to 1816. it's the oldest a.m.e. church in the south and houses the oldest congregation south
12:16 pm
of baltimore. this is a church that for generation has provided leadership, educated people when it was against the law to educate black people. this particular week when we're instruct by this coincidence, this is also the 193rd anniversary of a significant event in the history of charleston and emanuel church. [indiscernible] this would lead to shutting down of black churches. it would lead to emanuel essentially having to go underground for 30 years to carry on its services, to continue its mission of education. can you imagine that. and then it would not be until 1865, the end of the civil war, when the church can proudly reemerge and continuity historic mission. >> unfortunately still going back to that point on into where we stand today, this incident that we've been
12:17 pm
talking about the last two days unfortunately not the first act of violence that they've been the target of? >> no, no. the church was burned as a result of the public reaction over the denmark rebellion. it suffered an earthquake, a storm. but the thing that girls us hope is its ability to rise again. it's the resilience. it's the courage and spiritual belief of the people that compies emanuel that remind us that in difficult times like these, they look to their faith. they look to their leaders. and they will rise again. >> certainly a strength to celebrate right now. talking about the day that -- or the event that is being celebrated today juneteenth, could you talk about what that day is all about and what is being done to celebrate juneteenth. >> today is the 150 rght so it -- 150th so it has a special resonance. it's the end of slavery in
12:18 pm
texas. it's often referred to as the oldest end of slavery but there were still slaves in the united states at the end of 1856 where there would not be a -- 1865 where there would not have been a need for the 18th amendment. i'm be speaking this evening at 5:00 across from university hospital. there's a play at northwestern high school tomorrow at 3:30 and 7:00. there's a river walk by a group called adoce. all of these events to look forward to as well as a presentation that i'll be doing the 21st of june. >> cannot thank you enough for sitting down with us. >> sure. >> very good. we want to take a quick check of the forecast. >> thank you, nick. we are looking at temperatures on the rise into the low 90s in some parts of the metro area. we're going to cap that temperature at 90 degrees this afternoon. that's also your 3:00 temperature. so just a little bit cooler, a little bit less humid than
12:19 pm
yesterday as well. that's mostly because of those winds primarily out of the west. however, with heat and humidity already in place, there is the potential for some thunderstorms. right now it's # 7 degrees -- 87 degrees with a feels like temperature of 91 because of the dew point not at 70 degrees but just below it at 68. so that is a noticeably humid atmosphere. right now it's 80 degrees in hagerstown. 79 frederick but that's kind of the cool spot on the map. 08 in culpeper. we'll rise to the upper 80s to around 90 degrees throughout the area and on satellite and radar, you can see we don't have any heavy rain but there are spotty showers on the approach. you know how quickly those storms developed yesterday so it's not a big surprise to see 9 futurecast just kind of bubble up those storms as we head toward the evening commute. notice most of the activity is to the south and west of the beltway. again, it doesn't look like it's going to be as strong as it was during the afternoon and early evening yesterday. as we head into tomorrow, that front lifts out and we'll actually enter a more humid air mass. so that really sticky summer
12:20 pm
like feel comes back. then the remnants of what was tropical storm bill will start to move n. some pockets of heavy rain are possible during the overnight hours n. is 11:00 p.m. on saturday. the rain is largely moving out of the metro area, but we will still see some lingering showers potentially as we wake up on sunday morning. but the main story here is the heat and humidity that are going to be returning and temperatures will be well into the 90s on sunday afternoon. today we're going to cap it around 85 to 90 throughout the metro. 85 for your high in leesburg. # 6 in manassas -- 86 in manassas. 90 in downtown washington. only 28 in martinsburg and -- 82 in martinsburg and hagerstown. some areas you may be able to give the ac a rest. 62346 frederick. 72, though, in downtown washington. you still need the ac. if you don't have it, of course open up the windows. let in the fresh air. get the box fans circulating the air in your home. saturday, that's a day of concern as we head into the later evening. if you have an outdoor barbecue
12:21 pm
planned, if you wrap it up by about 8:00 so sunset you should be in good shape but then the remnants of bill arrive bringing us rain that could last into sunday morning. check out these temperatures, too, all the way up to 94 degrees on sunday. and in the first alert seven- day forecast, another heat wave on the way. 96 on monday. still in the 90s
