As I searched for the Cicley Tyson movie in which she confronted the racist White man (who she thought was her friend) with the question "Are you going to kill my boy" to make reference to an episode of "The Shift" in which a Black father today asked a similar question of some Killer Street Pirates I came across the following video clip:
A scene from "The Autobiography Of Miss Jane Pittman" was used to argue the point that in Jena LA no Black children should have to suffer from INTIMIDATION as they go to school.
I could not help but notice the recent murder of Darrion Albert in Chicago as he walked home from school through a hostile community. The thought crossed my mind that no one made this type of video presentation that drew upon the historical oppression that Black people suffered in the way of intimidation and how THE VERY SAME THING was the case in Chicago as one group of Black kids who "didn't belong" in the community came through each day to go to school.
Why is it that Civil Rights Struggle Era images are so selectively applied?
