A ceremony of remembrance was held Friday for Derrion Albert, the Chicago teenager who was killed in a brawl near Fenger High School one year ago.At the ceremony, Derrion's mother was joined by the Black Star Project and other survivors of children killed by violence. They are part of what the Black Star Project is calling its Parent Resource Exposition, meant to educate and empower parents. It's named in honor of Derrion Albert.

"We are trying to provide resources so we can collectively find ways to stop the violence among our youth. When parents have resources, they have hope," said Derrion's mother, Anjanette Albert.

The Derrion Albert Parent Resource Exposition will take place Saturday at St. Sabina's church.
