|Portrait of Thandiwe Hunt, 20, (died 2011) is from here. (Thanks to Renee for posting this.)|
So I sent that link and related links from Atlanta to many bloggers and activists. Only one woman replied. That was Renee @ Womanist Musings. I want to publicly thank Renee for her concern and regard for this deceased woman and her living loved ones. This was Renee's post: http://www.womanist-musings.com/2011/02/do-you-know-this-woman.html
No one else responded to me to let me know whether or not they posted this anywhere. (Not one white activist.) But even more shocking news from the investigator, a very compassionate woman, was that no one but me responded to her emails at all! What the hell is THAT all about????? (Yeah, we know what that is all about.)
The update is that this deceased woman has been identified by her mother. With what gratitude there can be in this situation, we can be grateful she has plenty of support around her. Thank you to all who said prayers.
Here is the latest press release. [Source: here]
