The Jena 6 (2007)

  
Format:  The Jena 6 DVD 
 
 
Death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal narrates this documentary on the controversial case of six black Louisiana teenagers, five of whom were charged with attempted murder in 2006 for an assault that capped a series of racially incendiary incidents on and around the Jena High School campus. In a town where the hanging of nooses on trees--branding them as "whites only"--goes relatively unpunished, can true justice be administered? 30 min. Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1.
