Today in New Orleans: Obama, Tales and Last Chance for Wed. at the Point
Today, President Obama addresses the National Urban League, Tales of the Cocktail kicks off its 10th annual citywide festival, and Amanda Shaw & the Cute Guys perform on the last night of Wednesdays on the Point. On this day in history, late jazz trombonist Charles Christian was born in New Orleans (1885), late jazz cornetist Johnny Wiggs was born in New Orleans (1899), and blues scholar, former NOLA resident and WWOZ DJ John Sinclair was found guilty for possession of two marijuana joints in Destroit in 1969. Sinclair was sentenced to 10 years in jail, but was released after serving 29 months, when a massive rally in Ann Arbor, Michigan (attended by John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Allen Ginsberg, Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale) called for his freedom. Now for today's rallying points:
