The high rate of Black women who go missing is NOT reflected in the media. Thank you, @OurBlackGirls, for shining a spotlight on these missing queens. To bring them home or get them justice, we MUST continue to amplify THEIR stories. https://t.co/IY7nneiUAj

Thousands of Black girls and women go missing every year. Last year, that figure was nearly 100K.
Their cases hardly ever grab national headlines.
