In Historic March, Tens of Thousands Gather from Across Nation to Demand Justice for Jena Six

Tens of thousands of protesters gathered Thursday in the town of Jena, Louisiana to demand justice for the Jena Six -- the six African American teenagers facing a total of over 100 years in prison for allegedly beating a white student in a schoolyard fight.
