AfroSpear bloggers helped push the Jena 6 story to the forefront of the national and international media.
Shawn is just one of the AfroSpear bloggers on the scene.
We are witnessing a great thing here. People are sick of the injustice in the so called greatest country in the world. The folks in Jena didn't think people would care about the fate of a high school student, especially a black one.
People even closed up shop. Wouldn't you think they would stay open and make tons of money? One shopkeeper said they just didn't know what to expect. I guess they expected a riot. Where are folks going to eat?
Stay tuned for more updates!
