Sandra Bland's family holds funeral service

Over the weekend, the family of Sandra Bland laid her to rest. She’s the black Naperville woman who died in a Texas jail earlier this month. It happened a few days after a white state trooper pulled Bland over for a minor moving violation. A dashcam video caught the traffic stop and the heated confrontation between Bland and the officer. Bland was arrested, and authorities say she committed suicide in her jail cell. WBEZ’s Natalie Moore attended the wake and funeral on Saturday and she joins us in studio. (AP/Christian K. Lee)
