Photos: The family of Alfred Wright, New Black Panther Party lead national rally for justice in Jasper


On Monday, April 7th, the family of Alfred Wright, the New Black Panther Party and a host of other supporting organizations, hosted a National Rally for Justice for Alfred Wright. The rally took place at the Texas Rangers office in Jasper, Texas. This was the second rally of its kind since Wright’s untimely death in November. Wright disappeared on November 7th and was later found by his father, Rev. Douglas Wright and an independent search team in an area previously searched by local authorities. The first rally took place in February in Hemphill, in Sabine County, Texas, where the crime occurred and the first links of a cover up in the investigation of the crime surfaced.
