[VIDEO] Sandra Bland’s Mother Speaks Out

Geneva Reed-Veal

On July 13, 2015, Geneva Reed-Veal became part of an exclusive club that she hopes nobody else will be joining.

There are no badges of honor, and membership is not voluntary. The dues can only be paid via a life-long debt of grief that never goes away. On that dreadful summer day, Ms. Reed-Veal lost her daughter, 28-year-old Sandra Bland and the details surrounding her death remain a mystery.

The pain Reed-Veal is feeling goes deeper than the hashtag “whathappenedtosandrabland” and in an exclusive interview with, the grieving mom lets us into her new reality. She says she also wants the world to know who her daughter truly was.
