    This be one of the forgotten Historical history hidden
    and history was made in 1965 in Bogalusa, Louisiana
    DEACONS of DEFENSE was born and formed by a african
    American in the movement for equal rights Marcus Clay

    In the 1930's this small town was ruled by the klans
    and black knew to never rase a hand or think too much
    would mean death as child Marcus witness a lynching that
    shook him for years .

    DEACONS of DEFENSE is a Historical history as the kkk
    klu klux klan white power tryed to keep hold on the color
    these men took on that power as Defenders of the African
    American community in Bogalusa in summer 1965 the action
    of this groups was formed when the (NVNCR)
    none voilence national civil rights movement as youth walked
    in marchies in town and was beaten as father of his daughter
    who was beaten by an officer of law Marcus attacked in protection
    to his daughter aid and was arrested but not jailed beaten by
    the law it was well known that a people of color couldn't
    walk , talk drink or eat as whites couldn't attemp a higher job
    title as supervisors he watch one man sign his name at the plant
    for a job title and was beaten by night as klans handle and
    enforced the power , as on the other side as MLK martin Luther King movement was going strong every movement attempted
    was burn down and lynching was in 1953 & 1957 as the movement continue with beatens and walks of none voilence
    marcus was appointed to leadership as he formed with the 5
    deacons from church to put a stop to the racial riots on the
    community DEACONS of DEFENSE became stronger as they
    cross in the movement with firearms to stand up against the
    kkk and took the movement in a diffirent direction backing
    micheal Dean for up north and small riots clashed and kkk was
    coming in from all over the south to stop the movement but it
    had reached power as dimastrators was coming in from
    CHICAGO, NEW YORK, WASHINGTON in marching for equal rights
    the Mayor & Gov. set a meeting to end it but the people wanted
    equal rights/ better jobs of pay//protection from lawmen when
    in marching and the whites couldn't have that and the whites
    wanted this deacon of defense to be demolished........Marucs
    walked out standing up for the people rights soon every color
    sign was rip down from walls ,doors and Afrian Americans was
    able to speak live freely as the DEACON took down the klans

    the untold story of the civil rights movement has been revealed
    why it was untold say Dr.L Lasimba M. Gray the author
    in his research and visits to Bogalusa it was untold , the white power media serving as an extension of the power structure of
    this country in the oppressional 50's and 60's could illafford to
    tell the story of the DEACON OF DEFENSE FOR JUSTICE
    the facts is the paradigm for selfdefense as exercised by the
    Deacons would have been duplicated all over the south and
    blood would have flowed in streets but in Bogalusa the
    population of such would have took over the south
    it was the great efforts that took to the deep south in errupting
    the struggle to stop the segregation and withstand the kkk
    in a fire for fire battle ......the untold stories of history made .

    by Dr.L Lasimba M.Gray......author
    film by Amin Sharif.......producer

    Thanks for the post Rich. You're right, the Deacons of Defense are a forgotten part of the Civil Rights Movement. They also played an influential role in the creation of the Black Panther Party.

    Good Post

    a brotha from the original BPP was telling me about it and I was amazed then, but I knew some one had to be protecting them.

    yes this made the BPP very strong and was able to stand up
    in the many efforts and roits for our equal rights , we so enjoy
    today cause of these very men it was half the battle we faced
    coming through the years , we still at war on rights and peace
    as well as freedom the justice has bent but not a full bend to
    our full rights we still labled and made to be the prime target
    they now today trade in the white sheets for blue uniforms
    now called the police .....with higher goverment backing them
