Jackson Eulogizes Austin's Hazel Obey

The Austin Chronicle has the story about Hazel Obey‘s funeral, featuring a eulogy by Jesse Jackson, Sr.

"Obey spearheaded a task force to aid the integration of [Austin schools], helped start the Texas Coalition of Black Democrats, and spoke out in concern about Austin Police use-of-force policies and apparent disparate treatment of minorities in the wake of the June 2003 shooting death of 20-year-old Jesse Lee Owens, her great nephew."
