Video: #SandraBland Arrest Site Renamed Sandra Bland Parkway

As of Tuesday evening (8.25.2015), the Prairie View City Council has voted to rename University Boulevard to Sandra Bland Parkway.

The name change began with a march, which included hundreds of Prairie View A&M alumni as well as current students, that went from the student union building all the way to City Hall, where the name change was finalized.

The street was renamed after Sandra Bland because it was the same street where she was arrested before subsequently dying in her jail cell.
