The Prarie View march

This is just outside of Houston. Thousands of black students from Prairie View A&M, a very black college, marched down the highway 7.3 miles to the nearest early voting location in very white Waller County to protest no early voting on their campus.

I mention it because I thought the video was cool.


  • Thank you for posting these links - this is a VERY powerful video. The issue of equal access to voting is something that should not be forgotten.

  • Yeah, I thought this was a very unique video.

    And for background, Prairie View is a decent sized school but not giant.

    But it is pretty rare for there not oto be a polling place at a Texas University.

    No thoughts on the Obama post?
