Jena Six - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jena Six - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Jena Six refers to a group of six black teenagers who have been arrested and charged with crimes related to their alleged involvement in the assault of a white teenager in Jena, Louisiana, on December 4, 2006. The incident is one of many racially charged events that have occurred in the town since the hanging of nooses on the 'white tree' on the Jena High School campus. The nooses initially caused racial tempers to flare, as for many it recalled the history of lynching in the South, though a few white people in Jena, who were not related to the incident, have claimed that it was just a 'prank' with no racist intent.[1] Critics of how the case was handled, including civil rights activists Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, have said that the arrests and subsequent charges were racially motivated."
