New HBO documentary gives Sandra Bland a voice
Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland, airing tonight, looks at the 2015 story of the African-American woman who was arrested after a traffic stop in Texas and found dead of suicide three days later in jail. Her death became a big part of the Black Lives Matter movement. "Although Say Her Name leaves gaps in reporting the context of institutionalized racism that ultimately doomed Bland, it successfully communicates that she was a woman who was well aware of racial injustice and had a fierce passion for fighting it," Soraya Nadia McDonald says of the film.
