We all know the names of Eric Garner, George Floyd, and the far too many other Black men that have died at the hands of police in between their deaths. But other than Breonna Taylor and perhaps Attatiana Jefferson how many of us know the names of 16 other Black women who have died in between the deaths of Garner and Floyd?
The African American Policy Forum has started a #SayHerName Campaign to change that and to help us all understand that Black women are under the same threat from police as Black Men in the United States
Below is a list of 18 Black women who have died at the hands of police since Eric Garner's death. The list does NOT contain the list of every Black woman to have been killed by police since 2014. Click each name to find out about her story:
