Hear their names. Say their names.

Say their names.

This resource provides 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, memorialize them, and raise awareness of racial injustice. 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.

For additional information, developer requests, or to request additional audio name files, please contact [email protected].

Please use the resources below to link directly to the streaming audio files, or embed audio buttons like this in your own website, blog, or other online media (no attribution required or expected):
