On March 21, 2007, an all-white jury convicted a black community activist, Reverend Edward Pinkney, of five counts of improprieties in connection with a 2005 recall election involving the City of Benton Harbor’s most powerful commissioner
Remember the summer of 2003 when Benton Harbor exploded after a young man was killed? Pinkney helped keep the peace by walking the streets…. read it and weep.
Pinkney founded BANCO (Black Autonomy Network Community Organization).
