Jena 6 and the Little Rock 9

Peace and blessings,

Below are videos from "Democracy Now's" special on the Jena 6 and the 50th anniversary of the Little Rock Nine (parts 1-4), and video of parents of 2 of the 6 speaking out. The incident of the Little Rock 9 have made their way into classrooms across the country, thanks to Facing History and Ourselves'
  • study guide for teachers.
  • Speaking of the Little Rock Nine, there's a lady in my church who went to high school with some of the parents of the Little Rock Nine. Talk about history! Also, it appears that
  • some students may be mocking the Jena 6 case.
  • I don't know for sure if they are mocking the Jena 6, but the clip is suspect nonetheless. Come to think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if they were. As always, feel free to share your thoughts on the recent developments of the Jena 6 case, and/or the Little Rock Nine. Stay blessed, encouraged, and speekonit...
