In this “Sinister Myth: Case Study”, Natarshia Corley tackles the killing of Florida activist Oluwatoyin Salau, questioning to what extent black women’s lives lost are registered in the struggle to end the violence. Natarshia Corley is a graduate student at the Ohio State University, working in the Self, Stereotypes, and Social Norms Lab.

Sinister Myth Case Studies feature recent news stories that may have been overlooked and that tell us something important about how stories we tell perpetuate violence.
