Black History Month Film Screening: 'Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland'

February 21, 2019 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

In celebration of Black History Month, Mississippi State's Gender Studies program is sponsoring a film screening of "Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland" that will take viewers deep inside a story that galvanized activists across the country. In 2015, Sandra Bland, a politically active 28-year-old black woman from Chicago, was arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town. Three days later, Bland was found hanging from a noose in her jail cell. Though ruled a suicide, her death sparked allegations of racially-motivated police murder, and Bland became a poster child for activists nationwide, leaving millions to question, "What really happened to Sandra Bland?"
