Rita Hester was a transgender African American woman who was murdered in Allston, MA on November 28, 1998. In response to her murder, an outpouring of community grief and anger led to a candlelight vigil held the following Friday (December 4) in which about 250 people participated. This vigil inspired the "Remembering Our Dead" web project and the international Transgender Day of Remembrance.
