We are kicking off a month-long series on civil rights. Farai Chideya and her guests debate whether the recent demonstrations in Jena, La. will revitalize the Civil Rights Movement for blacks.

Joining in are Mary Frances Berry, professor of history at the University of Pennsylvania, and James Rucker, founder of the Color of Change, an online activist site based in San Francisco, Calif.
