Kasandra Perkins, In Memorium

Saturday, December 1, Kasandra Perkins, a young Black mother lost her life, allegedly at the hands of her partner, Jovan Belcher.  Belcher, a linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, then took his own life.  Many issues are at play in this conversation: interpersonal violence, guns, the NFL, traumatic brain injury.  While there are still uncertainties to be uncovered,  we can be sure that Kasandra is not to blame and there is much work to be done in preventing gendered violence.  Rest in Peace, Kasandra.
