Jesse Jackson

Recommended Posts

Civil Rights leader and activist, Rev. Jesse Jackson (b. 1941) was diagnosed with parkinson's disease back in 2017. At a recent press appearance, many noted that the once spirited Jackson appeared to physically struggle as he issued a statement on the Derek Chauvin trial.

He ran for president one or 2 times.

Maybe if he had won we would have Parkinson's Law right now.

Consciously, I heard of him the first time in my english school book, 5th grade or something, as "the first notable African-American candidate for president".

He came up in school as one of the living civil rights activists from the 50s/60s.
