Light Brigade remembers Sandra Bland at Supreme Court and Capitol

On the 28th of July, the Light Brigade deployed lighted letters at the US Supreme Court and US Capitol to remember Sandra Bland. Police in Texas arrested Sandra and held her in jail for defying an illegal order from a cop at a traffic stop to put out her cigarette-in her own car. Three days later she was found dead in her cell with a noose around her neck. Some say she was lynched, certainly hanging is the very symbol of lynching. Sandra’s mother has said “this means war” at her daughter’s funeral. Her family and friends say there is no way she would have killed herself.
