    Joy Vandervort-Cobb is an Associate Professor of Theater at the College of Charleston. She spoke candidly with Jeanette Guinn about her participation in Saturday's "March for Black Lives," which took place in the wake of the recent murder of 9 members of Emanuel A.M.E. Church. Vandervort-Cobb sees the march as part of the process by which the city can begin to heal and move toward racial equality.
