Black Lives Matter Activists Are Dying and No One is Talking About It
Femestella, March 28, 2019
On March 23, the body of social justice activist Amber Evans was pulled from the Scioto River in Ohio. She had been missing since January 28, 2019.
Evans was well known in the city and was active in the community and social justice organizations. Her main involvement was with the People’s Justice Project; an organization that works to “confront police violence, end mass incarceration, and promote safety and health in our communities.”
On January 28, Amber went to work as normal and was last seen by coworkers at 5:30 pm. However, later that evening, her car and phone were found on different ends of the Scioto Mile.
Besides black social justice websites and Ohio news outlets, the death of Evans hasn’t exactly made national headlines.
Almost five years ago, 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed black man, was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri. The officer was found not guilty, which caused protests, riots, and the start of the “hands up don’t shoot” movement. In these five years, six men, who like Evans were active members in the community and a part of the Ferguson protests have died. One by one.( Collapse )
