A new museum exhibit honoring Sandra Bland has gone on display in Texas just in time for Black History Month. The Houston Museum of African-American Culture’s exhibit, which opened Saturday, celebrates the life of the woman who was found dead in a Texas jail cell three days after a controversial police traffic stop in 2015.
The exhibit, which runs through Feb. 28th, also has a makeshift car that visitors can sit in to watch the video of that traffic stop that eventually lead to Sandra Bland’s death.
What Bland’s mother feels when she sees this exhibit is unimaginable. She said everyone can learn something, according to ABC13.
“People seeing this exhibit should say to themselves hold on, I’m going to think a little differently about the way I do things — with my interactions with everyone but more so police officers,” said Reed-Veal.
While Sandra isn’t here, her mother said this shows how she is still speaking.
