“Sandra’s Smile” – Blood Orange

In a situation eerily similar to the Kashief Browder story, Sandra Bland, 28, committed suicide in her jail cell following a wrongful detainment. A reminder that the injustices we see occurring throughout society as it relates to policing and criminal justice are far reaching and vast. From the artist, Dev Hynes:

“I had a somewhat delayed depression upon Sandra’s death, I was hurt and upset and mad instantly of course… but I think a part of me had my eyes closed, as a form of numbness. A few days later it hit me and I was [inconsolable].”
