Jim Crow and the Jena 6

 An awful thing is happening in our country. Jim Crow is rearing its ugly head. Have you heard of the Jena 6? Free the Jena 6!By Li Onesto and Alice Woodward The “Jena 6” are six Black students who face the possibility of going to prison for many, many years because of a schoolyard fight. This story began on September 1, 2006 in the small town of Jena, Louisiana. A group of Black students sat under a “whites-only” tree in the schoolyard. Racist students responded immediately and the next day nooses were hanging from the tree for all to see.http://rwor.org/a/098/jena-six-en.html
