There are few figures and leaders of recent American history of greater consequence than Reverend Jesse Jackson, and none more relevant for America’s current political climate. In the 1960s, he served as a close aide to Dr. Martin Luther King, meeting him on the notorious march to legitimate the American democratic system in Selma. He was there on the day of King’s assassination, and continued his political legacy, inspiring a generation of black and Latinx politicians and activists.
