Did you know that up to 200 Black Women are missing in South Los Angeles? Did you know that as many as 100 are suspected to be victims of a serial killer? Why is this not widely known? Where is the justice?
The Black Coalition Fighting Back Serial Murders was founded in the mid-1980s following the police announcement that 11 women were victims of a serial killer in South Los Angeles, by anti-racist, anti-poverty and women’s rights campaigner Margaret Prescod.
The Coalition campaigns to press the police and city officials to prioritize the murders, for the media not to trivialize and malign the victims, and to draw attention to the general lack of resources in and the neglect of South LA and similar communities.
They have organized protests, held press conferences, done community outreach campaigns, and more. Some of their work is reflected in the film “Tales of the Grim Sleeper."
