ATLANTA (WAOK)-Gerald Rose, president of the Atlanta based New Order Human Rights Organization, held a press conference and rally Sunday, Aug. 21, 2011, near a memorial for Jackson resident James Craig Anderson, who died after being hit by a truck  June 26 at the Metro Inn on Ellis Avenue in Jackson, Miss.

Deryl Dedman of Rankin County, 19, is accused in the alleged hate crime in Anderson’s death. John Rice, 18, also of Rankin County, is charged with assault in the case.

Rose reported receiving several death threats before the rally but went ahead with the event anyway. Several hundred people attended the rally.
