Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jesse Nealand Stone, Jr., was an African American attorney and educator from Shreveport, Louisiana, who broke past color barriers in state government. A native of Gibsland in Bienville Parish, Stone in 1950 was in the first ever graduating class of the historically black Southern University Law Center, an institution established in Baton Rouge in 1947. For a time, he was the only black attorney in Shreveport, much as Louis Berry had filled that same role in Alexandria. During the civil rights movement, Stone was affiliated with the NAACP and worked as well through the Congress of Racial Equality, founded in Chicago in 1942 by James Farmer, Jr., and the newer Southern Christian Leadership Conference, established in 1960 in Atlanta, Georgia by the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. He was active in the desegregation of Caddo Parish public schools during the 1960s
