Civil Rights Movement Mired in Anachronism

While the vanguard of the Civil Rights Community showed it is stuck in 'scream, jump up and down' mode, a group of students at Middle Tennessee State University is raising money for the Jena Six Legal Defense Funds.

Students passing the Keathly University Center last week most likely saw the Alpha Kappa Psi display table set up to sell $1 black ribbons in support of donations to the students of Jena High School.

The ribbon sale raised $300 in an effort to garner support for the six young men in Jena to receive adequate and unbiased representation in court. The proceeds raised were given to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and will be given to the family members of the Jena Six.

Once again, the students lead the way on the journey to universal justice.
