Part 1: “Lowndes County: ‘The original Black Panther Party’”A revolutionary movement was born in 1966 in the tiny Alabama community of White Hall, Lowndes County — population 831. Local activists and members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee formed the Lowndes County Freedom Organization, an independent Black political party. The LCFO was known locally as “the Black Panther Party” for its ballot symbol. Later, some of the SNCC members founded the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, the Black nationalist and socialist organization anchored in California, with a name, symbol and inspiration drawn from Alabama roots and resistance.Lowndes County Freedom Organization, home of the “original Black Panther Party.” Alabama, 1966.Fightback in Lowndes County by oppressed peoples has a long history. From 1800 through the 1830s, the Creek Nation waged a fierce battle to stop the seizure of their land by white colonizers. As slavery and white supremacy became the law of the land, resistance continued.In 1861, in Lowndes and Montgomery counties, a hundred enslaved people of African descent, together with “poor whites of the country,” planned a rebellion to redistribute the “land, mules and money” of plantation owners. Twenty-five Black and four white insurrectionists were executed when their plot was discovered. (Herbert Aptheker, “American Negro Slave Revolts,” International Publishers, 1943)In the 1930s, the Sharecroppers Union, organized primarily by the Communist Party USA, led 6,000 members in Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery and Dallas counties. In 1935, the SCU conducted a spring cotton choppers’ strike and a summer cotton pickers’ strike to end starvation wages of $4 a month and stop workers from being evicted as mechanized farming took hold. Demands included equal pay for women and no discrimination against Black people.Repression in Lowndes County was brutal, with floggings, rapes and assassinations of union organizers and supporters. However, “armed strikers organized their own ‘posses’ and in one instance a group ‘met the vigilantes as they started to raid a striker’s shack. When the [boss’s] gang saw the opposition was formidable, they ran.’” (Robin D.G. Kelley, “Hammer and Hoe: Alabama Communists during the Great Depression,” University of North Carolina, 1990)The long tradition of resistance continued into 1966. On the night SNCC called the first voter registration meeting in Lowndes County, a room full of Black farmers showed up — armed. When told that SNCC was “a nonviolent organization,” an older farmer replied, “You turn the other cheek, and you’ll get handed half of what you’re sitting on.“ (Kelley)Black women leadBlack women were at the heart of civil rights work in Lowndes County. Gardenia White of White Hall was the lead plaintiff in White v. Crook, a landmark case that strengthened the Civil Rights movement and was a cornerstone of the developing women’s liberation movement.The case was filed to put Black people on the jury rolls and then expanded to challenge a law that kept all women from serving on Alabama juries. Jury selection became a movement focus after all-white juries acquitted white supremacists of murdering Viola Liuzzo and Jonathan Daniels, white civil rights workers, in Lowndes County.White and the other plaintiffs won in 1966. The historic White v. Crook suit was one of the first brought to end the systematic exclusion of Blacks from jury service. It also became the first U.S. case in which “a federal court relied on [equal protection in] the 14th Amendment to rule a state law unconstitutional because of sex discrimination.” (Dr. Susan Mallon Ross, “Dialogic Rhetoric,” tinyurl.com/zjjkzvw)The winning brief was co-authored by legendary Black civil rights lawyer Pauli Murray — who also co-founded the National Organization for Women.Another landmark victory was won in 1968 on behalf of Black teachers being denied tenure and job benefits in Alabama. Teacher Dorothy Hinson of White Hall, who initiated the suit, belonged to the activist Jackson family and was the sister of farmer Matthew Jackson, who provided housing, support and arms to SNCC workers in Lowndes County.

Here is something that is both smile-inducing and disheartening at the same time.(Kinda like the smallpox joke I made in my last entry.)A group of people, whose identity and intentions are largely unknown (read: I am too lazy to research it much) decided to flank the tunnels of a New York City subway station, and spew unadulterated cheer at unsuspecting passersby, scurrying un-merrily along on their daily commuting way.No, they weren’t glitter-bombing or handing out free samples of dollars, but they were cheering. Loudly and voraciously. (Voraciously may not be the right word here, but I like it, and I’m also too lazy to look up its real meaning. I’m pretty sure I mean vociferously, but the same sentence applies, so use whichever one you think is more righter.)Anyway, most of the people passering-by don’t give the ass of a rat they just saw on the tracks moments ago, but some can’t help but to smile, wave, and in rare bouts of almost-unheard-of New Yorker revelry, high five the good-natured cheerer-onners.I suspect this says something, sociologically, about people. My guess is that the people who just walked through like, “whatever,” are more unhappy than not, whereas those who participate with the participatents, are happy!Or high.Yeah, probably high.If I was there, and not high, I would have gone with the low-down-handslaps-thing, running along the length of the line of folks as if I were emerging to my name being called over the loudspeakers at a basketball game. (You do know what I mean, right?)Or, I thought, maybe I would have sidled up to the wall myself, joining this happy bunch by also clapping voluptuously at everyone who passed by.(Yes, this time I used a big V word incorrectly on purpose, cuz it’s funny. You see what I did there?)Anyway, you don’t come here to read what I write (Do you? If so, I love you. Most people just skip to the video. I hate them. Yes, that includes you M and B. (Those are my kids. But I’m just kidding, because they read what I write. But it’s only because I MAKE THEM! You’re grounded.)), so check it out!

Comment Tony Adams is unhappy with Per Mertesacker and Arsenal (Getty/Premier League Production)Tony Adams has criticised Per Mertesacker over his decision to join Freddie Ljungberg’s coaching staff following Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Thursday evening.Mertesacker, who made 221 appearances for the Gunners as a player, was appointed as the club’s academy manager last year.But following Unai Emery’s sacking last week, the 35-year-old moved across to assist interim boss Ljungberg in first-team training and matches.However, Adams believes Mertesacker’s role is too crucial to give up – even if it is only on a temporary basis.ADVERTISEMENT‘Per Mertesacker is the academy director. The club have taken him out of his role,’ Adams told Premier League Productions.

MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) – Spinner Moeen Ali crowned his excellent series by taking five wickets as England beat South Africa by 177 runs in the fourth Test yesterday to secure a 3-1 series victory.South Africa, needing 380 to win, were bowled out for 202 on the fourth day with Man-of-the-Series Moeen taking 5 wickets for 69 runs and James Anderson claiming 3 for 16.The only real resistance came from Hashim Amla (83) and skipper Faf du Plessis (61), who put on a 123-run fourth-wicket partnership.But three quick wickets from Moeen put an end to any thoughts of a miracle and ensured England their first home series win over South Africa since 1998.Moeen, who scored an unbeaten 75 in England’s second innings, became the first player to score 250 runs and take 25 wickets in a four-match Test series.“What a series he has had,” said England all-rounder Ben Stokes. “He has come on leaps and bounds as a cricketer and this series has really defined him as a player for us.”It was always going to be a testing time for the tourists’ top order. Stuart Broad struck in the fourth over with a beautiful delivery that straightened off the seam and clipped Dean Elgar’s edge, to the delight of Jonny Bairstow, who grabbed the catch.Heino Kuhn then edged Anderson to Cook at slip and on the final ball before lunch Temba Bavuma was given out caught behind, after review, from the bowling of Toby Roland-Jones.There was no meek surrender though, Amla and du Plessis batting with skill and focus in a partnership that threatened to at least make contest of the Test.But spinner Moeen made the breakthrough, half an hour before tea, with a sharply turning delivery catching Amla leg-before on the back-foot, and he was dismissed following a successful review.Ali then dealt with Quinton de Kock, driving out of the rough and edging to Alastair Cook in the slips, and picked up the wicket of Theunis de Bruyn, caught by Stokes.The spinner then picked up two more wickets as England made short order of the tail after tea.“The way we have played as a unit, especially in these last two games has been brilliant,” said England skipper Joe Root, who had enjoyed success in his first series in charge.ENGLAND 1st innings 362 (J.

Klopp Porto, Portugal | AFP | Jurgen Klopp might be steeling himself for some sleepless nights as he tries to work out how to stop Lionel Messi, but for now the German can be delighted at seeing his Liverpool side extend their outstanding record in European ties under his management.Having won 2-0 at home in the first leg, Liverpool always knew that an early away goal in the second leg of their quarter-final against FC Porto at the Estadio do Dragao would effectively kill the tie.So it proved, as after surviving a barrage of early pressure in northern Portugal on Wednesday, Sadio Mane’s 26th-minute strike broke Porto hearts and set Liverpool on their way to a 4-1 win on the night.Having won 3-1 at Bayern Munich in the last round, here was another statement away victory for the Anfield club after they lost all three matches on the road in the group stage.Klopp remains unbeaten after 10 two-legged European ties as Liverpool manager, with two coming against Porto.He has only been stopped in finals, against Sevilla in the Europa League in 2016 and Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League.“I know people like to be disrespectful to a team like Porto, but we knew how difficult it is and we won 2-0 at home, it was deserved, and here anything could have happened,” Klopp said.“We dealt really well with it. In the quarter-finals there are only unbelievably strong teams.”The former Borussia Dortmund boss knows the same applies in the semi-finals, where last year’s runners-up face the daunting prospect of Messi and Barcelona.Having been at home first against Bayern and Porto, the Reds will head to the Camp Nou for the first leg on May 1.It is six years since Barca lost at home in the Champions League, but Liverpool need to ensure they remain in the tie before the return at Anfield on May 7.“It is our dream. Every single player wants to play this kind of game in their lives,” admitted Mane, yet Klopp will have to come up with a plan to deal with the brilliant Messi.“Thank God I don’t have to think about that tonight,” Klopp joked on Wednesday.“I have a few more nights to think about that. Everybody tried it so far and nobody can do it. “We still will try it. We are looking forward to it but we have so many jobs to do before we meet Barcelona. Let’s first play these games and then let’s prepare Barcelona.”– ‘Another intense game’ –The focus now reverts back to the Premier League, with Liverpool two points clear of Manchester City at the summit having played a game more.Klopp’s squad stayed in Portugal on Wednesday night before returning home to start preparations for Sunday’s visit to relegation battlers Cardiff City.By then they could be behind Pep Guardiola’s City side, who will look to avenge their incredible Champions League defeat against Tottenham Hotspur when they play the London club again on Saturday.Despite the games coming thick and fast, Liverpool emerged from their trip to the Estadio do Dragao in great shape.Klopp rotated his squad, with Divock Origi making a rare start while Roberto Firmino and Jordan Henderson were only used as substitutes.In addition, Joe Gomez came off the bench for his first top-team appearance since suffering a leg fracture in December.“In the last third of the season you see the finish line already but you need a little bit of luck with injuries,” admitted Klopp.“We play again in three days, so we fly tomorrow and make ourselves ready for another intense football game.”Cardiff boosted their survival hopes with a 2-0 win at Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday.“Cardiff is completely back in the race with that result so they will fight for it.”However, after this latest victory — their eighth in a row — Liverpool have the momentum as they dream of winning the league and the European Cup in the same season, something they last achieved back in 1984.Share on: WhatsApp
Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Paul Pogba London, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is bemused as to why he remains a constant source of criticism despite missing most of the campaign through injury.The 27-year-old has been restricted to just eight appearances this season due to a persistent ankle injury.Former Liverpool captain and manager Graeme Souness has been one of the most outspoken critics of Pogba since he returned to United from Juventus for a then world record £89 million ($112 million) fee in 2016.However, Pogba claimed he did not even know who Souness was.“I didn’t even know who he was, really,” Pogba told the official Manchester United podcast. “I heard he was a great player and stuff like that. I know the face but (not) the name.“Like I said I’m not someone that watches a lot of (punditry), I watch a lot of football but I don’t stay after the game to listen to what they say about why they did this, or why they did that. I like to focus on football.”Souness – who won three European Cups, and five league titles as a player at Liverpool – responded to Pogba on Tuesday morning.“I’m happy with that. The oldest saying in football comes to mind: ‘Put your medals on the table’. I’ve got a big table,” the former Scottish international told Sky Sports.Pogba’s return to Old Trafford has failed to match the expectations of his price tag despite winning the Europa League and League Cup in his first season under Jose Mourinho. A bitter fall out with Mourinho followed in the next two seasons before the Portuguese was sacked in December 2018.And after a brief hot streak when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge, Pogba’s time under the Norwegian has been beset by a lack of form and fitness.However, the French World Cup winner still believes the criticism he has received, particularly in his absence this season, is unjustified.“It’s good to hear good stuff instead of bad stuff but when you play football, you know yourself. It’s what your manager and team-mates want, the rest is just talk,” added Pogba.“I guess they (the critics) miss me, I don’t know? I’m not someone that looks always at Sky Sports News.“When you know football, you don’t need someone to tell you what’s happening.“One day maybe I will meet them and ask them because I really want to know, why?”

The Nelson Leafs had the Beaver Valley Nitehawks right where they wanted them.Leading 2-1 in the best-of-seven Murdoch Division Semi Final, the Green and White could take a stranglehold on the series with a home-ice win Tuesday night.However, Dallas Calvin put the Hawks back on even terms scoring a power play marker three minutes into overtime to give Beaver Valley a 4-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff victory at the NDCC Arena.The series, tied 2-2, now shifts to Fruitvale for Game five with Game six back in Nelson Friday.“Ya, this feels really good,” said Calvin minutes after cruising into the slot and snapping a shot past a screened Brett Soles in the Leaf nets.“(Nelson) is a very good team but tonight we did a lot of little things right and buried our chances.”The small, but important, parts to the Hawks game allowed the visitors grab a 2-0 lead two minutes into the second period.Dan Holland scored in the last two minutes of the first frame before Derek Lashuk gave the Hawks a two-goal advantage early in the second.The lead stood until Nelson got some life when Aaron Dunlap scored a shorthanded marker midway through the frame.Less than two minutes later, Carsen Willans scored his first of the post season on a mad scramble in front of Beaver Valley goalie Jarrod Schamerhorn.It was the longest wait between goal and celebration on record as referee Mike Paige needed what seemed like an eternity to consult with his linesmen before confirming the Nelson goal.But the Hawks roared back before the period ended to grab another intermission lead.Ryan Edwards did all the work behind the Nelson net, centering a pass that Keanan Patershuk buried past Soles. “They came hard . . . they were pretty desperate for the win,” said Leaf defenceman Cam Weir.“I thought we weathered the storm pretty well and came back and pushed back quite hard.”Beaver Valley tried to lock down the Leafs in the third. But Bryce Nielsen jammed the puck pasts Schamerhorn with eight minutes remaining in the period to tie the game at 3-3.Leaf captain did most of the work, driving past Hawks defenceman Walker Sidoni and forcing Schamerhorn to cough up a rebound Nielsen pushed into the net.Nelson had a great opportunity early in overtime when Edwards was called for delay of game after shooting the puck over the glass.However, the Hawks were able to kill off that penalty before being awarded their own man advantage when Edwards was hauled down at the Nelson blueline by the Leafs’ Kyler Wilkinson nullifying a potential Beaver Valley breakaway.“We can’t really think that way . . . we’ve got to have a short memory,” Weir said when asked if the Leafs let one slip away in Game four.“We’ve got to forget about it and move on and get ready for (Game five) Thursday.”Tuesday’s win means the series now is a best-of-three affair with the Hawks regaining home ice advantage.“Playing at home is great . . . our fans are great and we’re happy to be playing at home,” Calvin said.ICE CHIPS: Nelson out shot the Hawks for the second straight night, 31-22. . . . After being shutout Monday in Game three, the Hawks got the power play working, going two for seven in the game. Nelson was scoreless in five attempts. . . .Nelson played without the services of forwards Dustin Reimer and Greg Nickel due to injury. . . .If a Game seven is necessary it will be played Saturday in Fruitvale. . . . Before the game, the Leafs recognized the Nelson Atoms winning the West Kootenay Championship over the weekend. . . .Game attendance topped the 600 mark.
