Burnley "Rocky" Jones

"Burnley "Rocky" Jones is best known as a civil rights leader who invited the Black Panthers to Halifax in 1968.  But while the RCMP was following him around and tapping his phone -- looking for signs of a revolution -- he was busy setting up an ambitious oral history project."

A really interesting piece of (neglected) Canadian history.
