The Whitney Museum chooses silence in an effort to displace, downplay, and negate valid public outrage regarding their policies, ethics and leadership. By Jamara Wakefield May 17th marked the start of the 79th Whitney Biennial.

Bobbi Kristina Brown Dies at age 22
This Sunday night ended sadly for so many who are mourning the passing of Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobbi Brown and beloved fallen angel Whitney Houston. Bobbi Kristina had been in a coma since being found unconscious in her bathtub at home on January 31st, and after her family recently chose to move her to Hospice care. (Unsettlingly enough, Bobbi Kristina was found almost 3 years to the date that her mother was found drowned in her hotel bathtub.)

Bobbi Kristina’s family released the following statement on Sunday: “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
The Brown and Houston families had publicly begun disputes in the past, but readily claimed to come together for the care of Bobbi Kristina, with her father stating that her health was their top concern, as was the ongoing criminal investigation underway surrounding the events that led to her being found unconscious. Bobbi Kristina was found by, Nick Gordon, her partner (publicly engaged, privately claimed to be married although nothing legal filed) whom she was raised alongside since Whitney took him in at age 12.
According to a pst CNN News article discussing the family’s lawsuit raising criminal investigation: “The lawsuit states that just prior to January 31, Brown told someone that Gordon was ‘not the man she thought he was” and set up a time to meet that person later in the day. Brown never made it to the meeting, the suit claims.” Instead, it states that on the morning of January 31, 2015, Bobbi Kristina became engaged in a loud argument with Nick Gordon at her home, which subsequently ended, and then as the report continues, “Brown was later found unresponsive and unconscious, face down in a bathtub, with her mouth swollen and another tooth knocked out.”
The implications of foul play are as devastating as the ultimate physical loss itself. Until more information is discovered to report on, Wear Your Voice extends our condolences to friends and family of Bobbi Kristina, as well as her millions of supporters and fans (who are reaching out on social media tonight).
