In an effort to magnify the names of the Black women that we have loss tragically and unnecessarily to police brutality, Haus of Swag HONORS these beautiful souls.
Rest in infinite POWER.
SAY THEIR NAMES!
“Black women’s mere presence, speech, and protest of mistreatment ... [are] a threat that officers meet with physical or even deadly force.” This must be acknowledged. This must be part of the national discourse. We need this understanding to change the laws, policies, and practices that govern policing." - Andrea Ritchie, ACLU

Currently, the imprisonment rate for Black women (92 per 100,000) was twice the rate of imprisonment for white women (49 per 100,000). Hispanic women were imprisoned at 1.3 times the rate of white women (67 vs. 49 per 100,000). Black girls ages 18 to 19 are (4) times more likely to be imprisoned than white teenagers.
Black adults in general (and Black women in particular) are more likely than white ones to report feeling sad and hopeless some of the time, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. But only 30% of Black adults who needed mental health care in 2017 received it. (The same survey found that 48% of white adults got the care they needed—not a great number, but better.) Unfortunately, the number of African Americans in the mental health profession is low. Only about 4% of psychologists, for example, are Black.
