Webby & New York Festival Award Winning series focusing on the assault and killing of Black people by police and in ‘Stand Your Ground’ states, highlighting incidents throughout the United States.

Serving as a memorialization for these individuals, we learn about who these people were through the the words of the people that knew them best, while also helping us understand what these situations do to their families and communities not only in the immediate aftermath, but also what happens when the news-cycle moves on and the social media attention shifts focus.

We offer solutions, spread awareness and support for these families & communities, including a crowdfunding campaign throughout the series to directly benefit the families impacted by these incidents (they receive 100% of those proceeds), so that we can make an immediate tangible difference.

    Social Justice Roundtable

    On this special episode of Say Their Name, we present a roundtable discussion featuring members of Community Justice, including Dawn Dalton, Nikki Owens, Tamara McKinney and Beverly John. They are all part of the new found community of support for Nikki Owens and her family, fighting for justice for William "Boo Boo" Green. We gathered at the home of Dawn Dalton and had a great dialogue on how they met, the importance of activism and understanding the judicial system, policing in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and how they all came to be activists in their own right.

Moving and real

This is just the first hand stories of families which humanizes what we hear in the news. Much needed when it’s too easy to become numb and just see peoples lives as numbers.

Say Their Name

I am so grateful for a podcast that is transparent enough to keep us informed of the number of racial injustices that have occurred in our lifetime and before!! These stories are loaded with intimate details of the victims, their families and loved ones which enables the listener to understand the situation as if we lived it too. The content of each episode allows the listener to become vulnerable to the point of heightened awareness and action. While listening (and after listening) you will definitely be compelled to “Say Their Name”! Why? Because it could be you, better yet, it IS YOU!! Thank you for this extraordinary podcast!!
