About the Author

The sudden transition from the private life of motherhood to the very public position of being the mother of the late Sean Bell was intimidating to say the least, yet Valerie Bell emerged with a distinguished poise of grace; a disposition she credits to her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Valerie Bell is no stranger to the opposition of injustice. Within the last eight years she has been embattled with challenges from adversarial agendas. The outcome of her efforts have been encrusted into the legendary history of New York City.
