There are currently more than 543,000 missing person cases in the United States, but African American families are not receiving the same amount of media coverage and resources as their white counterparts.
The foundation recently premiered its “Black and Missing” documentary on HBO Max, which follows sisters-in-law and Black and Missing Foundation founders Derrica and Natalie Wilson as they try to track down community members of color who have disappeared without a trace.
“We hope to this docuseries will be a wake-up call and bring awareness to the disproportionate number of missing persons of color,” Derrica Wilson, co-founder and CEO of the Black and Missing Foundation, said in a statement to ShineMyCrown.com. “Unfortunately, their stories are often untold and these families don’t get media attention or law enforcement support they deserve. This is more than just a documentary, we are igniting a movement to help find us.”
