Black Girls Matter Shirt
In 2017, Black Girls and Non Binary youth in Miami-Dade County designed these shirts to honor Black Girls and Women who were criminalized because of their race and gender. The 4 women are:
Sandra Bland - In 2015, arrested at a traffic stop for failure to signal a lane change, and found hanging from her cell three days later
Rosa Parks - refused to give her bus seat to a White person, sparking the movement to desegregate public transportation
Malaika Maoh Eyoh - In 2016 at 17 years old, was discriminated by her high school because her natural Afro was deemed "too distracting for learning"
Dajerria Becton - In 2015 at 15 years old, was at a pool party and wearing a bathing suite while thrown to the ground and physically assaulted during arrest by a police officer
