In honor of our 96th Founders’ Day earlier this week…

Spotlight: Soror Sandra Bland

Soror Bland 2

If you don’t already know, Sandra died while in police custody back in July 2015.

She was starting a new job in TX and was pulled over by a cop. He accosted her and assaulted her during the traffic stop b/c she challenged his reasons for stopping her.

She was arrested. 

Three (3) days later, she was pronounced dead while in jail. She was still there b/c she wasn’t able to post bail. Police claimed it was suicide. 

I, like everyone else, believe she was murdered. #sayhername #SandraBland #Sandyspeaks #ifIdieinpolicecustody #blacklivesmatter

Soror Bland

I thought it was more poignant to pay tribute to her memory, as a reminder that she may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. She lives on and still speaks! 

Her documentary, Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland, will air on HBO on December 3, 2018.

It will also air in theaters in select cities (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Windsor, Canada, Brookline, MA, St. Louis, and San Francisco) the week of November 9th.
