Black Girls Going Missing Right In Our Backyard

In the last few days, social media has been buzzing with photos and posts of missing black teens from Howard University and UDC’s backyard; Washington D.C.

Within the last week, 10 teens have gone missing in D.C. But you wouldn’t know about this unless a) You follow the Metro Police Department’s Twitter feed, b) You’re a relative of one of the missing or c) You watch the local news. And even with c), I can’t say that I’ve seen news reports of all these teenagers,  According to the Root.

News One explains there are currently 64,000 Black women missing in the United States. Natallie Wilson, co-founder of the Black and Missing Foundation and Avis Jones-DeWeever joined Roland Martin Thursday on “NewsOne Now” to discuss their efforts to bring more awareness to missing women on color.

Metropolitan Police are asking, if you have seen her or have any information? Call 202-727-9099.

Take a look at the updates and tweets:
