Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland + Q&A With Directors Kate Davis and David Heilbroner; June 6
This film explores the mysterious death of a 28-year-old black woman found hanging in her Texas jail cell three days after being arrested for a traffic violation.  Authorities ruled Sandra’s death a suicide, but dash cam footage fueled worldwide allegations of murder.  Part legal thriller, part parable about race in America, SAY HER NAME takes viewers deep inside a story that came to polarize the nation. Q&A to follow the film with directors Kate Davis and David Heilbroner.

The Q&A will be moderated by Lawrence Otis Graham, who is a local author, activist and lawyer. He writes and speaks widely on racial bias in our society and he is also the Chairman of the Westchester County Police Board.

Tickets begin at $12.
