Did you know that: as many as 200 Black women are missing in Los Angeles, maybe 100 killed? Police referred to the murders as No Humans Involved (NHI)?

Black Women’s Lives Matter
(A Women’s History Month Event).

A new film by Nick Broomfield that highlights the devaluation of Black women’s lives and the lives of sex workers.

The film shows the:

— criminal neglect or worse in law enforcement’s handling of the investigation and the efforts of the community based Black Coalition Fighting Back Serial Murders to win justice and accountability.

— devaluing of Black women's lives, and of sex workers struggling to survive in the most impoverished part of LA

— vulnerability to violence women who are considered “illegal” as easy prey due, in particular women who are homeless and/or who work on the streets or caught us in the crack epidemic

The film was shortlisted for an academy award.Trailer link: http://www.pipelinead.net/uploads/HBO/grim/GrimSleeper_promo_v3_lo.mov
