United States USA Date:1976, February 2 Duration:2 min 15 sec Sound:Yes
Jesse Jackson is interviewed in a press conference. Jesse answers Patrick Borgan of London Times on protesting peacefully with reference to 1968 and its riots and unrest vis-à-vis Civil Rights and racial equality for African Americans. 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.
