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.

    KC your thoughts are respected. But if what you say is true then lets close all history books. Including the ones you used to get your degree. Lets stop reading Bible history also with all of its doom and gloom. Bettter yet why don't you look back and tell me how you made it where you are today. Try moving forward alone.

    I think everyone knows that these older blacks wont let the "civil rights" issue rest. Those days are over you old _____. Let it go and focus on the present and then maybe you will see some maturity and less crime in the black community. The younger blacks, age 35 and less knows full well that civil rights are equal for blacks and whites. Actually blacks have more rights. So, old blacks, yall need to just quit trying to cause a division between the races knock it off and focus on cleaning up your neighborhoods from crime and drugs. That would be more useful to society. Whiners!!!
