Confronting America's Broken Promise
Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr.
Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr., nationally recognized civil rights icon, is founder and president of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. A close partner with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the fight for equal rights, Jackson reflects on how a centuries-long broken promise sparked his involvement in the movement. More than 50 years following the height of the civil rights era, Jackson encourages the next generation to advance the yet unfulfilled journey toward equality.
