How do you survive the worst tragedy a mother can face?  We welcome Essence Bembry mother of DeAndre’ Bembry of the Atlanta Hawks and hear their story of loss, grief and making meaning of that loss.  

A few weeks before the draft, Essence’s youngest son Adrian was shot and killed.  She shares  how they got through that time, burying one son and preparing her other son for the chance of a lifetime.  

Essence tells us about her passion, AP World, helping victims of gun violence started in honor of Adrian.
