Lennon Lacy: A New Generation’s “Strange Fruit”

“The nineteenth century lynch mob cuts off ears, toes and fingers, strips off flesh and distributes portions of the body as souvenirs among the crowd.”  ~Ida B. Wells
Lennon Lacy did not hang himself; he was lynched!  He did not commit suicide; he was murdered! Capturing the correct language is so critical in this case, which is probably why mainstream media has refused to cover it.  The correct language reflects a history America would rather not share, while “lynching” is a word most Black folk would rather forget.  The harsh reality is that Lennon Lacy, a 17-year-old Black kid from North Carolina was lynched just two months ago.
What happened down there?…

From Chicago: Get on the Bus to Detroit! All out for Rasmea!

After a series of unfair rulings by Judge Drain a few days ago, our call for everyone to “Get on the Bus” is now even more important.  All of Rasmea‘s supporters must pack the courtroom every day of the trial, and especially the first week: Tuesday, November 4, through Friday, November 7.

Buses for Rasmea’s trial in Detroit will be leaving from the Chicago area on Monday night, November 3, at 11:30 PM, from the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview at 7360 W. 93rd Street.

Those who want to ride the bus MUST reserve a space by filling out this online web form.  We are calling on supporters to try to make a commitment for the whole week.  On the form, you MUST tell us how many days of the trial you can attend.

If you have any questions, email them to justice4rasmea@uspcn.org.  See you on the bus and in the courts!
