Michael David Murphy first became aware of the Jena Six story as a result of BBC2's documentary "Race Hate in Louisiana". He is now in Louisiana photographing and recording interviews related to the trial of the six african american boys who were charged with attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder for a schoolyard fight.

In the next few days, Murphy will post a few images from Jena that, related to the case, will link to a multimedia piece he is working on. CNN began reporting on the story today, following the lead of the BBC, who crafted an excellent hour-long documentary that can be found on P2P networks.
