    ‘Say Her Name’ Turns Spotlight on Black Women and Girls Killed by Police


    ... Rachel Gilmer, associate director of the African American Policy Forum, says the reason black women’s stories are excluded from the discussion is simple.

    “Across the board, all the way up from the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative down to the grassroots movements that we’ve seen rise in this country in response to state violence, men and boys are seen as the primary target of racial injustice,” she says. “This has led to the idea that women and girls of color are not doing as bad, or that we’re not at risk at all.” ...

    “We wanted to launch ‘Say Her Name’ to really uplift the lives and experiences of those who have been killed by police and the many other forms of police violence black women experience,” Gilmer explains, noting that officer-involved sexual assault often garners little response.

We are joined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, professor of law at UCLA and Columbia University, founder of the African American Policy Forum and co-author of the new report, "Police Brutality Against Black Women."

    Yes this is so needed. I believe that last week, the Ohio police that got off, jumped on the car and killed two people and one was a female, but I'm not sure. I plan to look into this. But at any rate, this story hurt so bad down in my soul.

    Yes, it was horrible. And what made it so bad Chevron, is that they were found to be unarmed, and the car had a habit of "back-firing" which police assumed they were armed and shooting.
