#SayHerName is a hashtag created to raise awareness of the police brutality in America towards African American women. Sandra Bland died, allegedly committing suicide whilst in police custody in Houston, Texas. Due to inconsistencies in evidence (the mugshot, police statements, Sandra Bland’s personal vlogs) many people refuse to believe that she really would take her own life.
So many celebrities in the entertainment industry are profiting off black culture but not standing up for black issues. People deserve answers and the truth as to what happened to her.
Here are a list of celebrities who ARE willing to say her name.
Her family deserves the truth, a full consistent story, because quite frankly we don’t know what happened. This can’t happen to another. People are now calling for cameras to be installed in cells and on police. There was also a demonstration yesterday in Union Square, New York City. People are extremely angry and frustrated and so its comforting to see celebs using their status and speaking out.
Help bring her justice, say her name.
