I just found out about Essence Bowman, she died this week after she got hit by a car during a police arrest.
The police didn’t even contact her family to tell her what happened to her….the family found out from the hospital.
She was also mentally ill and leaves behind 3 beautiful children
It’s such a disgrace that we haven’t heard much of her story…we need to seriously do right be the countless black women who are lost to violence and protect the ones that are living
she has a gofundme page that has raised about 300 dollars out of 20k goal to cover her expenses: https://www.gofundme.com/essencebowman

Only raised 600 dollars in 13 days
