Chapter 96

  • That night, Ben, L.J., and Jonah hear chanting, so they go outside to see what's up.
  • They are greeted by the sight of an army of Black men and women, marching down the streets.
  • Why is this a big deal? Because Black people aren't supposed to congregate like that.
  • They are all chanting "All white? No right! All white? We fight!"
  • Ben tells us they are referring to the fact that the jury will be all white.
  • Jury selection starts tomorrow, but Black men aren't allowed to serve on juries in Mississippi, so this group is taking a stand.
  • Their leader? Ida B. Wells-Barnett and W.E.B. Du Bois, that's who.
