#SayHerName: A Vigil in Remembrance of Black Women and Girls Killed by the Police. Although Black women are killed, raped and beaten by the police, their experiences are rarely foregrounded in our popular understanding of racialized state violence.

“Yes, all lives matter, but we’re focused on the Black ones right now, ok? Because it is very apparent that our judicial system doesn’t know that. Plus, if you can’t see why we’re exclaiming #blacklivesmatter you are part of the problem.”

“A hundred years ago, they used to put on white sheets and use blood hounds against the Negroes. Today they’ve taken off the white sheets and put on police uniforms.” – Malcolm X

“If you are not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” – Malcolm X
