Remembering The Jena 6 March With Urban EpiCenter's Keith Caldwell

The following is an interview I conducted tonight with Keith Caldwell, fellow community organizer here in Nashville, and one of the principle parties that I worked with in helping to organize 10 free bus of some 500+ people to go down to Jena 1 year ago tomorrow.

We discuss how it all started with a conversation over breakfast; and what we've taken from it and have built on that mobilization since.

The Evonne I reference in the convo is Evonne Tisdale of Center for Community Change.

I think a number of events took place in and around Jena in the months preceding the Barker assault which have been linked to an alleged escalation of racial tensions.
