CHARLESTON, S.C. – Funeral services will be held for the Rev. Clementa Pinckney today.

Pinckney was the pastor of Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina and was one of nine people shot to death during a bible study last week.

Today at his funeral, Pinckney will receive a rare honor.  President Obama will deliver his eulogy.

Many people are eagerly waiting to hear what President Obama has to say.

It will be a chance for him to address racial divisions in America publicly and perhaps more bluntly than he ever has before.
