“Why Toyin body don't embody all the life she wanted?
A baby, just nineteen”
The above lyrics from Song 33 by artist Noname, captures the feelings of hurt, anger and confusion I have felt since I read that her body was found, on June 15th 2020. Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau was one of thousands of black women in America who suffered a horrible death that could have been prevented if black women’s lives were valued.
