In 2015, Sandra Bland, a politically active black woman from Chicago, was arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town. Three days later, Sandra was found hanging from a noose in a jail cell. Combining Bland’s video blogs with extraordinary access to her family’s testimony and their legal team, Say Her Name is both an engrossing mystery and a disturbing account of systemic racism and neglect.

A panel will follow both screenings featuring Kate Davis (filmmaker), David Heilbroner (filmmaker), Cannon Lambert (Bland attorney), and Geneva Reed-Veal (Sandra Bland’s mother).
