He was president of his High School Honor Society-and became the first African American to make a serious run for President of the United States.  Follow Jesse Jackson from his South Carolina childhood to his work with Martin Luther King, Jr., to his grassroots organizing in the Chicago ghetto, to national and international fame.  Stand beside him in the pulpit or at a press conference as he fights against poverty, discrimination, and second-class citizenship for African Americans.
