Thread Name: African American Protest Slogans & Songs
Subject: African American Protest Slogans & Songs
The purpose of this thread is to explore the continuity & changes in protest slogans and songs that are associated with the Black American civil rights movement from the mid 1960s to date.

As part of my contribution to this thread, I plan to include information from online articles, and online photos, photo captions, and videos about the Jena 6 case and other specific cases/events.

However, I am not starting this thread to discuss the facts, allegations, and issues to the Jena Six case or those other cases.

For those interested in discussing the Jena 6 case, here's a link to a Mudcat thread:

BS: The Jena 6 Controversy


For those interested in information about Jena 6, there are also numerous online articles, including these two:

Frequently Asked Questions About The Jena Six
{The Town Talk Alexandria-Pineville, Louisiana}

Wikipedia-Jena Six


I'll be providing links to articles about the Jena Six case only as citations for those articles, photos, etc that I will be sharing
that address the question of continuity & change in demonstrators' chanting and other practices.

It's my hope that other persons will post to this thread and that those posts will focus on the how protest chants & songs and other customs that may have changed or may have stayed the same.   

Thanks in advance for your posts to this thread!
