Nia Wilson was standing on a Bay Area Rapid Transit station platform in Oakland, California, Sunday night when she was stabbed to death in an apparently unprovoked attack. Wilson and her 26-year-old sister Lahtifa Wilson were transferring at the MacArthur BART station when Cowell allegedly walked up and stabbed both of them, according to police. BART police arrested Cowell on Monday, July 23. He had a history of violence and a criminal track record.

Many have voiced their thoughts on Nia’s death as well as their opinions on what needs to be done to protect women of color from white supremacist violence.
