Sandra Bland, age 28, died in police custody on July 13, 2015. To learn more about her legacy, go to link below. Her death occurred right after we had compiled the names for the Dearly Beloved Project, but I felt moved by my ancestors to memorialize her. This portrait is meant to honor her light and her activism; in the months before she died, Sandra was actively engaged in speaking to the struggle of Black liberation on social media. Her legacy lives on in the powerful videos she left behind.
