In July 2015, Sandra Bland was found dead in her jail cell after she was arrested for failing to use her turn signal.
And now, a little more than a year later, her family has reached a $1.9 million settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit.
"Right now, my joy is in the fact that there will be real changes from here forward," Bland's mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, told KTRK.
