Several Black churches have been victimized by arson since the Emmanuel AME church shooting in South Carolina that claimed the lives of 9 innocent church members during a weekly Bible Study last month and many public figures have since come forward to give their perspective.

While on hand for the 2015 Essence Festival weekend in New Orleans last week, Madame Noire caught of with the likes of Gospel greats Yolanda Adams, Smokie Norful and Marvin Sapp at McDonald’s 365 Black Awards to get their thoughts on the string of African-American church burnings that have taken place in just a few short weeks, how Black churches are handling all that is going on currently and more.

Watch the video below to hear what they had to say.
