In this episode of Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-At-Large Marshall Ramsey visits with educator and motivational speaker Dr. Tommie Mabry.
Mabry is the founder of Tommie Mabry Company and Best Selling Author of A Dark Journey To a Light Future and If Tommie Can Do It, We Can Do It. Born and raised in a tough, impoverished neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi, Mabry was seemingly destined to sink into a life of crime, drugs and violence. However, he was able to turn his life around and now has become an author and motivational speaker focused on uplifting kids and the educators who teach them.
Mabry mentors at-risk kids to keep them on the path to success and has now come out with a motivational album for teachers called The Educator’s Album.
