“Say Her Name” Documentary on Sandra Bland Slated for June 4 from HBO Home Video

On June 4, HBO Home Video released Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland. On July 10, 2015, a politically engaged 28-year-old African American woman from Chicago was arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town. After three days in custody, Sandra Bland was found hanging from a noose in her jail cell. Part legal thriller, part parable about race in America, filmmakers Kate Davis and David Heilbroner’s documentary follows the Bland family and legal team from the first weeks after her death as they try to find out what really happened.
