Roscoe Jones spoke to the Delta Nu Zeta chapter of Zeta Phi Beta sorority as a part of the group's annual Black History Month program.

Jones is working with his group Freedom '64 to restore the old Council of Federated Organizations office on 5th street.

He says it is especially important for young people to get on board with the project.

"The school system is supposed to be teaching civil rights," says Jones, and what better way of teaching civil rights than involvement."

Tonight's event was hosted by the Meridian Museum of Art.
