Mother continues legacy of deceased son

The mother of a Brooklyn man killed in East New York in late June is honoring her son by selling the books that he wrote.



Mildred Brown's son Zuriyah Benye-Hudah was killed at the corner of Eldert Lane and Dumont Avenue, where she also created a makeshift memorial.



Proceeds from the book sales are going to a scholarship fund in his name.



"I want his legacy to be to love everybody, as he put in his book," Brown says. "Don't let nobody make you get angry, 'cause no matter what you throw at me, I am going to still love you and embrace you and say it's a better day."



Just last month, Brown faced her son's accused killer in court.



"I would like to see life," she says. "He took a life, he needs to do life."



Brown and her family will be back in court Jan. 20.
