“She died of a broken heart. The mom of a Bronx man who killed himself after spending three horrific years in Rikers Island has died from complications of a heart attack, her lawyer told the Daily News Sunday. Venida Browder, 63, the mother of Kalief Browder, died Friday at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, said her lawyer, Paul Prestia.” 

This is so sad!! 😢😫😪

Ava DuVernay’s documentary [“13TH”], which does a superb job at showing that America’s criminal “justice” system is nothing but an extension of slavery, touches on Kalief Browder’s tragic story. I just watched it yesterday, so waking up to this news is hard to read. 

People of African descent are living through so much trauma. Our people are dying left and right, and we are damn near powerless!!! How can we eradicate this “evil system” for good?
