Racist terror: assaulted/murdered because she stood up for her rights

Sandra Bland was an activist in Black Lives Matter! from Chicago. She had just gotten a job at Prairie View A & M , her alma mater, and was driving to it.
Sandra was also an artist who had a whole life to live...
Geneva Reed-Veal, Sandra's mother, recalled one of her last conversations with her daughter:
"She said, 'Momma, now I know what my purpose is. My purpose is to go back to Texas. My purpose is to stop all social injustice in the South.' "
