Jesse Jackson is interviewed in a press conference.

Judith Randal of New York Daily News and Henry McGee of Newsweek Magazine are also present. Bill McCrory of Voice of America is the moderator. Jackson discusses the purposes of the protests of the 1960s, and explains that the vision toward the goal of equality takes time and has curves, rather than being a straight line. He implies that some people because satisfied with the gains from the 1960s, but that there is more to do, and that moral depravity and a lack of good ethics is the current obstacle in the 1970s holding back progress.
