OUR STORY

On July 22, 2018, three African American sisters, Nia, Letifah and Tashiya Wilson, were attacked by a knife-wielding man, later identified as John Cowell, after exiting a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train at MacArthur station in Oakland, California. 18-year-old Nia Wilson died after her throat was slashed. Her older sister, Letifah, was stabbed in the neck but survived.
