In July 2015, Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old black woman from Chicago, was arrested and jailed for failing to use a turn signal. Three days later, she was found hanging from a noose in her jail cell, sparking a groundswell of protests and activism nationwide. Now, three years later, a new HBO documentary explores never-before-told circumstances surrounding her death, punctuated by Sandra’s own commentary that seemed to foretell her own fate. This week’s pod was recorded at the Center for American Progress’ live screening of the documentary, “Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland,” in which Daniella moderated a panel with Cannon Lambert, the Bland family attorney, and David Heilbroner, the film’s co-director.
