2011: US to stick in crisis until new economic paradigm is found – Jesse Jackson
Racial, social and economic justice must prevail in the US’ priorities today, says one of America’s leading civil rights activists Reverend Jesse Jackson.
After his second semester at that predominantly white school, Jackson transferred to North Carolina A&T, a historically black university in Greensboro, North Carolina. Accounts of the reasons for this transfer differ. Jackson has claimed that he changed schools because racial prejudice prevented him from playing quarterback and limited his participation on a competitive public-speaking team.
He is the founder of the organizations that merged to form Rainbow/PUSH.
