Now that photos and video of Sanders being arrested at civil rights protests in 1962 and 1963 have surfaced:

Will it help him obtain more of the African American vote ? It was a key segment of the population that went with Hillary by a three to one margin in Nevada, but is clearly one Sanders needs to get ahead with his campaign.

This certainly won't hurt him with the black community, but I don't know if his earlier activism (about half a century ago) will resonate with younger black voters and older black voters can easily recall how the Clintons worked for minority rights in the 1980s and 1990s.

Sadly, even the great Killer Mike seems unable to shift the trend preferring Hillary.
