Anniversary of the Jena 6 Protests

Talk show host Michael Baisden and the Rev. Al Sharpton in Louisiana during the Jena 6 protest. Regardless of your opinions of the two, the protests were successful in demonstrating the courage and mobility that still exists within the African American community. Although I do believe that we need new leaders to tackle modern challenges, I respect the work Sharpton and Baisden do in bringing awareness to certain issues and sparking a lot of conversation and heated debate.
