This is Sandra Bland.
She was forcefully taken into police custody while in TX after being arrested for a traffic violation. Three days later, she was found hanged in her cell. They ruled it a suicide, but I and countless others never believed that lie. She died in July 2015.
She would have been 32-years-old today.
Happy Birthday, Sandra!! ❤
She was more than just a black woman that died in police custody. She was a daughter, sister, soror, friend, and an activist against racial injustices. She had a good life, she was happy, and she was gearing up to start a new job before her untimely death.
I encourage you all to read about her or watch the documentary, Say Her Name, on HBO that chronicles her journey if you aren’t familiar with her story.
