Salute To Young Sandra Annette Bland!


Readers, the funeral for Sandra Bland, the outspoken 28-year-old Chicago-area woman who died in a Texas jail cell almost two weeks ago, was held yesterday in Lisle, Illinois, the Chicago suburb where she grew up. Friends, family, and spectators gathered for the wake at 9 a.m. followed by the funeral at 11 a.m.


The service was held at DuPage African Methodist Episcopal Church, where private cameras were not allowed. Church officials say over a 1,000 people was expected to attend. Sandra Bland, was the bold young civil rights activist found dead in a Texas jail cell, was remembered as a courageous fighter for social justice.


The service was held a day after an autopsy report was released, which found that Bland, 28, used a plastic bag to hang herself three days after her controversial traffic stop July 10. Her family has raised questions about the findings, saying she was about to start a new job that she was excited about and that it is unlikely that she would have taken her own life.
