Mama Shu Harris is on Ellen today at 3 p.m. on Local 4!
Ellen sends her correspondent, Jeannie Klisiewicz, to Highland Park to check in with the incredible community activist!
After her son, Jakobi, was killed by a hit and run driver, Mama Shu was empowered to rebuild her block, known as Avalon Village, into a thriving community.
During her last appearance on the show, Ellen and her friend Chris Burch donated a Cocoon 9 prefab home worth over $100,000 to her neighborhood. Today, Mama Shu shows off the improvements to Avalon Village, including her brand new office space.
