Sandra Bland may not be known to you, but she should be, for her story illustrates an abusive reality in America of which we all should be aware.

I myself know very well who Sandra Bland is. I followed the news stories closely when this awful episode happened. I remain appalled by the incident, and hope this documentary works to make more people thoughtful about what it means to be a black American.
Sandra Bland, Say Her Name documentary 2018

I am not sure what people know or don’t know about Sandra Bland. There is a lot you could find out if you google her name.

Briefly, she was an African American 28 year old female from Texas who was found hung in a Waller County, Tx jail cell. She was an activist who openly spoke out about police brutality of Blacks, a social media civil rights leader and a supporter of the movement “Black Lives Matter”. She has been negatively portrayed as a drug addicted, mental health case who committed suicide while in police custody. It was determined the police had no legal right to stop, detain, nor arrest her. How Sandra Bland is portrayed or remembered is determined by who you ask.

Why do I talk about Sandra Bland? I talk about Sandra Bland because during this current political climate I think she represents many things. She represents someone who was not afraid to speak up and speak out. She represents how Black people have a real fear of being stopped by the police even when they know they have committed no crime. Sandra Bland’s death is a reality of that fear. Sandra Bland represents how fear is dissolved into anger. It represents how helpless many may sometimes feel in a world that is so fearful and hateful of different. Sandra Bland represents how little others know about mental health issues, such as depression and suicidiality. Many of you may not know her name; however, if you learn of her story you can decide for yourself who is responsible for her death. What I believe she and her family would like others around the world to know is what her life stood for and what she ultimately died for. If you are interested in knowing more about her story use this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wsRe454u8s. Getting to know Sandra Bland is getting to know more about the perception of the United States of America in which American Black people currently live.
