2006: Six black youths assault a white teenager in Jena, Louisiana. The case would spark protests by those viewing the arrests and subsequent charges, initially attempted second-degree murder, as excessive and racially discriminatory. Supporters circulated online petitions, raised money for legal defense, and held a demonstration in Jena on Sept. 20, 2007 (pictured). All six defendants would eventually be convicted of simple battery.
