  1. Thank you for this post commemorating the 40th anniversary of the killing of two students (and wounding of twelve others) at Jackson State University, which is virtually ignored by the mainstream media. It is one thing to discover events omitted from recorded (and/or re-written) history. It is quite another thing to live to see painful historic events being deliberately “overlooked” on the basis of the race of the victims.
