WATCH: Heather Heyer’s mother honor her daughter at the 2017 VMAs

If you told Susan Bro a month ago that she would be speaking at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, the 60-year-old woman might not have believed you. "Only 15 days ago, my daughter Heather was killed as she protested racism," Bro stated during the emotional speech. "I miss her, but I know she’s here tonight. I’ve been deeply moved to see people across the world—a whole world—find inspiration in her courage.

I want people to know that Heather never marched alone," said the mother of the 32-year-old paralegal, who was killed when a car crashed into protesters on August 12. "She was always joined by people of every race and every background in this country. In that spirit, MTV has decided to honor all six nominees for Best Fight Against the System." "We have made my ancestor an idol of white supremacy, racism and hate," Lee said. "As a pastor, it is my mortal duty to speak out against racism, America’s original sin. Today I call on all of us with privilege and power to answer God’s call to confront racism and white supremacy head on."
