More than 64,000 black women remain missing across the United States as of today.
Dr. Aggrey said, “If you educate a woman, you educate a nation but if you educate a man, you educate an individual.” This outlines the vital role women play in nation building. There are several women disappearing in the air every day in all the provinces of America, of which we do not hear their whereabouts.
Report says, in 2012 the total number of black women who disappeared in America totaled to 12.85% out of 34% of all missing persons. According to the Black And Missing Foundation, most women disappear in the states of New York, Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland and Florida.
This is heartbreaking and uncomfortable situation and due to this, the foundation has teamed up with a TV network to make a series, Find Our Missing, telling the stories behind the women’s disappearances.
Behind the hundreds of cases are painful details sketched out by families, left wondering what has become of their loved ones. Many women have been missing for decades.
This has posed great fear and threat, hence making life unbearable and unhealthy for them in America.
Among the missing is Phoenix Coldon, 23, of St Louis, Missouri, on December 18 while Stacey English, 36, vanished in Atlanta, Georgia on Christmas Day.
