Media updates on the Scott Sisters

Here’s some brief media updates, thanks to everyone for keeping their ears and eyes open and for continuing to put out information on the case of the Scott Sisters and especially the medical emergency that Jamie Scott is enduring within that prison hellhole.

Bro. Earnest McBride wrote an excellent article on the 3/5 Scott Sisters rally held on 3/5 in Jackson, MS which is featured on the FRONT PAGE of the current (3/4-3/10) issue of the Jackson Advocate newspaper! Many thanks to Bro. McBride for this article as well as his top-notch and very informative
blogtalk radio duties on the Empowerment Hour Online University along with Bro. Kermit Eady, which has featured the case of the Scott Sisters several times and together are broadcasting regularly towards their
freedom! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/eadyassociates

TheGrio.com is an NBC site which also features an article on the Scott Sisters! The site describes itself as “the first video-centric news community site devoted to providing African Americans with stories and perspectives that appeal to them but are underrepresented in existing national news outlets.”

The piece they did is at:

so please check it out and enter your comments, there is a bit of a debate happening and your input would be great! Let’s maximize this to the fullest!

This brief article has already led to another media source, the radio show “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton” which today featured Bro. David Wilson who heads up TheGrio.com and is best known for the film Meeting David Wilson which aired last year on MSNBC. Hopefully this will lead to even more supporters and continue to build the momentum to a national demand for the release of these women!

Now that Al Sharpton cannot deny that he is aware of the case, there’s no reason for him to not act on this knowledge on their behalf…
