This Mother’s Day, we remember the mothers behind bars, the mothers who have seen their children locked away, and the wrongfully imprisoned who long to embrace their mothers today.

Clarence Harrison was convicted in 1987 for a crime he did not commit and spent more than 17 years behind bars. During that time, he lost a lot, but perhaps the greatest loss was that of his mother who passed away while he was still imprisoned. Clarence was exonerated in 2004, but never got the chance to hug his mother as a free man.

Songwriters Melanie Hammet and Ben Holst were so touched by Clarence’s story, they turned it into a song, “Mama’s Face”. This video is from their performance at GIP’s recent Talent and Truth event.
