Texas street renamed for Sandra Bland

Students at Sandra Bland's alma mater, Prairie View A & M University, organized a march in her honor.

A Texas city is renaming a street in memory of Sandra Bland, a Naperville woman found dead in her jail cell last month.

The street is located on the campus of Bland's alma mater, Prairie View A& M University, and will be called Sandra Bland Parkway.

Earlier Tuesday, students at Prairie View A& M University marked Tuesday night in her honor.

Bland, who was in a Texas jail for three days after being arrested during a traffic stop, is an alum of Prairie View.

Texas officials said the woman committed suicide, but her family disputes that.
