Justice for Jimmy Lee Jackson!

Kenneth Mullinax in today's Anniston Star serves up "Justice for Jimmy Lee Jackson: After 41 years, feds should launch thorough probe of Marion shooting" where he informs us of his work to have the U.S. Department of Justice do a complete investigation of this young man's death some forty years ago. I was born in October of 1965 yet I've studied the movement and wish I could have been alive to participate in those surely amazing years. Jimmy Lee Jackson, plus the people of Alabama and beyond, deserve a complete understanding of the events leading to his death. For background consult the following: The Star's John Fleming did a solid piece on Jimmy Lee Jackson back in 2005. Sojourner's carried Mr. Fleming's work to a larger audience. NPR carried coverage of his work. Peace ... or War!
