On the morning of June 13, three days after Sandra Bland’s arrest, she was found dead in her jail cell.
Who is Sandra Bland’s mother?
Al Sharpton recently met with the mother of Bland, Geneva Reed-Veal, of Illinois.
Her 28-year-old daughter, Sandra Bland, had told her mother she found her purpose in the world when she returned to her alma mater, Prairie View A&M to take a dream job.
According to Heavy.com, just days after Bland moved to Texas, she was stopped by State Trooper Brian Encinia for failing to signal a lane change and then charged with assaulting an officer after a heated traffic stop caught on dashcam video.
Officials say it appears Bland committed suicide, but her death is being investigated as a homicide until all facts are made available.
