It's Princeton Now For Obama's Former Green Jobs Advisor

 Public mistakes can sink promising political careers. Nobody can understand that better than former Obama advisor Van Jones, who had to step down from his White House position as the go-to guy on green jobs and environmental justice issues only months into his tenure. But now Princeton University has appointed Jones to a year-long fellowship in the Center for African American studies and the Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

PHOENIX (NNPA) - February, Black History Month, held a special meaning for Charles F. Long II, and his family. The Arizona State Department of Corrections released him from behind prison walls.
Founder and president of America's Buffalo Soldiers Re-Enactors Association (ABSRA), Colonel Long, as he is fondly called, was convicted of reckless manslaughter and aggravated assault in January of 2005 by an all White jury, for the death of 14-year-old Anthony Haynes, at a tough love boot camp near Buckeye Arizona run by Long.
