McBath stepped onto the national stage at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, joining eight other mothers whose Black children were killed by cops or gun violence.

Jordan Davis, was the 17-year-old  who was shot to death at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida, in 2012 when a white man opened fire into the car he was sitting in with friends after he complained about their loud music.
