The Tragedy And Triumph of The Jena 6 a.k.a. The New Scottsboro 9

W.E. A.L.L. B.E. Radio's Jena 6 Special Summary

Thanks To Everyone For Tuning In And Downloading The Sunday July 29, 2007 Edition Of Tha Artivist Presents....W.E. A.L.L. B.E. Radio...Our Jena 6 Special Was One Of Our Highly Rated And Most Relevant Shows To Date...E-mails Have Been Pouring In From All Over Telling Me How Unbelievable This Story Of "Just Us" Is...People Also Stated That They Will Do Their Part to Eradicate This As Well As Other Things Still Being Produced From America's Twisted Legacy Of Racism...

Although Bro. Tony Brown the radio host couldn't join us for this important program because of a case of laryngitis, he nevertheless prove influential because he was the reason why many of us knew of this Jena 6 case in the first place...Bro. Brown has been using his very popular daily morning talk show 'Eyes Open With Tony Brown' as a platform to discuss The Jena 6 case...He was the one that gave the African American male youths the nickname in the first place and he has been on top of this case even before there was a case...He was the first to speak out about the September 2006 hangman nooses incident concerning "the whites only tree" that sparked the series of incidents which culminated in the arrest of six African American male youths known as The Jena 6...Even before The BBC and CNN was on the scene Bro. Brown was giving a blow by blow analysis of the situation from round one...I and many others thank him immensely for his selfless contributions in this important cause...He was definitely there with us in spirit...

Our scheduled guests included Sis. Tina Jones the mother of Bro. Bryant Ray Purvis (one of the Jena 6) and Bro. King Downing the Director of the ACLU National Campaign Against Racial Profiling...Our surprise guests included Bro. John Jenkins the father of Bro. Carwin Jones (one of the Jena 6) and Bro. Dell Hickman the lawyer for Bro. Bryant Ray Purvis...Breaking news was made when Bro. John Jenkins announced matter of factly that the infamous "whites only" tree was recently cut down and taken off the school premises...Even Bro. King Downing and Bro. Dell Hickman, people very close to this Jena 6 situation, weren't aware of this development...Thanks also goes to Bro. Morris Howard who always offer great insight and wisdom when he calls in a.k.a. a true fan and supporter!!!

I should be surprised that this is going on, but unfortunately, I'm not. Damn shame. I've posted a bulletin, a blog, and forwarded to all of my family and friends to bring light on this issue. Is there a website that people can donate to? I'm not too comfortable with sending things to a P.O. box. I definitely enjoyed the show, and the guy who took over as host while you were having technical difficulties was phenomenal. What a great (accidental) team! I was very interested to hear from the lawyer as well and great thing you were able to join back into the conversation.
