Gary Jules

Gary Jules Aguirre Jr. known as Gary Jules, is an American singer-songwriter, known for his cover version of the Tears for Fears song "Mad World", which he recorded with his friend Michael Andrews for the film Donnie Darko. It became the UK Christmas Number One single of 2003. Since Jules's version has been used on many American TV shows such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The O. C. Smallville and Riverdale, as well as in a commercial for Lloyd's Bank in 2016 featuring a horse galloping through different stages in people's lives. Jules recorded a cover of the song "Mad World" by Tears For Fears for the 2001 film Donnie Darko and released it as a single in December 2003; this timing allowed it to become the Christmas Number One single in the UK for that year. The cover featured as background music in various television programs such as drama General Hospital, as well as individual episodes of Without a Trace, The O. C. Smallville, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, it was used in the trailer for the 2010 film The Crazies and the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps' 2010 Production "Mad World".

Adam Lambert sang a cover of "Mad World", influenced by Jules's version at two different points in his American Idol competition, as well as during the American Idols Live! 2009 tour. Following its appearance on the popular television show, Jules's cover of the song rose to #11 on the iTunes Store; the song "Something Else" was featured on the Season 5 episode "My Fallen Idol" of the NBC show Scrubs. The song "Gone Daddy" is based upon an experience that led to Jules relocating his family from Southern California to North Carolina. A neighbor was gunned down one night in Los Angeles and while the police were investigating the shooting, Jules approached one of the officers, explained that his child was napping, asked if the officer knew when they would be finished; the officer said he did not know, but that the family could leave Los Angeles if they didn't like it. Jules relocated shortly thereafter. Jules's song "Wichita" was inspired by a class he took at UCLA regarding Native American history.

During the class he read a story about Native Americans following herds of bison around the nation to survive. Jules was a surprise guest on a series of Parisian concerts of French singer Mylène Farmer, called Timeless 2013. In all the performances that take place in the Palais omnisport de Bercy, Gary Jules sings his cover of Mad World joined by Mylène Farmer, they follow by the duet song "Les Mots" that Mylène Farmer released in 2001 with Seal. So far Gary Jules is part of the tour, as he was performing during the concerts in Lyon. "Mad World" Directed by Michel Gondry "Broke Window" "Beautiful". Stop animation by Tony Clavelli.

Albany Movement

The Albany Movement was a desegregation and voters' rights coalition formed in Albany, Georgia, in November 1961. Local black leaders and ministers, as well as members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People founded the group. In December 1961, at the request of some senior leaders of The Albany Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference became involved in assisting the Albany group with organizing protests and demonstrations meant to draw attention to the continued and brutally enforced racial segregation practices in Southwest Georgia. However, many leaders in SNCC were fundamentally opposed to King and the SCLC's involvement, as they felt a more democratic grassroots approach aimed at long-term solutions was preferable for the area than King's tendency towards short-term, authoritatively-run organizing. Although the Albany Movement is deemed by some as a failure due to its unsuccessful attempt at desegregating public spaces in Southwest Georgia, those most directly involved in the Movement tend to disagree, citing it as a beneficial lesson in strategy and tactics for the leaders of the civil rights movement and a key component to the movement's future successes in desegregation and policy changes in other areas of the Deep South.

Prior to the forming of the Albany Movement coalition, there had been neither formal organized protests against the segregated public facilities in Albany, nor challenges to the Jim Crow laws prohibiting and deterring black voter registration, although one small band of local black leaders had attempted at one point to petition the city's commissioners for the desegregation of a few public spaces, to no avail. With the arrival of three young SNCC field workers in October 1961, came the concentrated organization of voter registration and mass meetings, culminating in the formation, alongside other civil right groups, of the Albany Movement; the established African-American leadership in Albany was resistant to the activities of the incoming SNCC activists. C. W. King, an African-American real estate agent in Albany, was the SNCC agents' main initial contact. H. C. Boyd, the preacher at Shiloh Baptist in Albany allowed Sherrod to use part of his church to recruit people for meetings on nonviolence.

For decades, the situation in segregated Albany had been insufferable for its black inhabitants, who made up 40% of the town's population. At the time of the Albany Movement's formation, sexual assaults against female students of all-black Albany State College by white men remained ignored by law enforcement officials. Local news stations such as WALB and newspapers such as The Albany Herald refused to truthfully report on the abuse suffered by the Movement workers at the hands of local white people referring to blacks as "niggers nigras" on air and in print. Thomas Chatmon, the head of the local Youth Council of the NAACP was opposed to Sherrod and Reagon's activism; as a result of Chatmon pressing his opposition some members of the African-American Criterion Club in Albany considered driving Sherrod and Reagon out of town, but they did not take this action. On November 1, 1961, at the urging and with full support of Reagon and Sherrod, local black Albany students tested the Federal orders of the Interstate Commerce Commission which ruled that "no bus facility, bus, or driver could deny access to its facilities based on race".

The students obeyed local authorities and peacefully left the station after having been denied access to the white waiting room and threatened with arrest for having attempted to desegregate it. In response to this, Albany Mayor Asa Kelley, the city commission, police chief Laurie Pritchett formulated a plan to arrest anyone who tried to press for desegregation on charges of disturbing the peace. On November 22, 1961, the Trailways terminal was once again tested for compliance, this time by a group of youth activists from both the NAACP and SNCC; the students were arrested. In protest of the arrests, more than 100 students from Albany State College marched from their campus to the courthouse; the first mass meeting of the Albany Movement took place soon after at Mt. Zion Baptist Church. At the same time, C. W. King's son, C. B. King, a lawyer, was pushing the case of Charles Ware from nearby Baker County, Georgia against Sheriff L. Warren Johnson of that county for shooting him multiple times while in police custody.

These developing conditions where the limits of segregation and oppression of African Americans were being tested led to a meeting at the home of Slater King, another son of C. W. King, including representatives of eight organizations. Besides local officers of the NAACP and SNCC, the meeting included Albany's African-American Ministerial Alliance, as well as the city's African-American Federated Women's Clubs. Most of the people at this meeting wanted to try for negotiation more than direct action, they formed the Albany Movement to coordinate their leadership, with William G. Anderson made president on the recommendation of Slater King, Slater King was made vice president; the incorporation documents were the work of C. B. King, it became a broad-front nonviolent attack on every aspect of segregation within the city. Bus stations and lunch counters reserved for White Americans were occupied by African Americans, boycotts were launched, hundreds
