Two Lectures on the Jena 6

I’ve just returned from Louisiana, and thought I’d post first word about two events I’ll be doing in early November. One in Baltimore and another in Atlanta.

I’ll be doing a presentation about the Jena Six, citizen journalism, and the role technology is playing in mass media (as seen through the Jena Six story). Details below:

As background, I made two trips to Jena this summer, well before the story exploded into what it’s become. I posted pictures, write-ups, and a video which can all be found on whileseated.org. In recent articles, “black blogs” and networked college students have been cited as primary reasons as to why the story has attracted so much attention. I’m glad whileseated.org was able to play an early role in getting the Jena 6 story the attention it deserves.
