A mother was overcome with emotion when her son surprised her at a family prayer gathering in Durham, North Carolina after being incarcerated for 13 years.
Each year, thousands of Black youth are incarcerated for one offence or another. Some have also been wrongfully jailed for crimes they never committed.
A video that has surfaced on social media shows a mother who was brought to uncontrollable tears after she was caught unaware by her son’s sudden presence.

In the first scene of the video, the woman is filmed at a family prayer gathering thanking God.

After the group ends the prayer, her son stands next to her and gives her the surprise of her life.
The woman is visibly overwhelmed by her son’s presence because it is obvious that she was unaware that he had been released.
