To support efforts to raise awareness of racial injustice, NameCoach is providing full name audio files for a partial list of Black Americans killed by police. It is intended to support those who are encouraging the public to hear and say these names, to help recognize their humanity and memorialize them. It is also intended to support the correct pronunciation of these names in national discourse.
The names are sourced from a list maintained by NPR CodeSwitch as well as requests from the community. Pronunciations are researched by the NameCoach team and, where possible, reflect the way family members pronounce the names.
