28 year old Sandra Bland was pulled over for a failure to signal, forcibly arrested and was later found hanging in her jail cell in Waller County, Texas, on July 13th, 2015. 


" This transcript is to be performed as a requiem in words, to be spoken by a large cast of Black women actors and a huge cast of all women who want to join in. All women are invited to join in. Come and speak or sign, sit or stand in solidarity, in memory of Sandra Bland and all Black women who have died in police custody. " - Mojisola Adebayo
