REV. SHARPTON’S VIDEO STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO REV. JESSE JACKSON’S ANNOUNCEMENT THAT HE HAS PARKINSON’S DISEASE CAN BE FOUND HERE
“Reverend Jesse Jackson announced today that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I spent time with him and his family in New York as he made his announcement, and as I watched him I was reminded of the greatness of this man.
How he continued Martin Luther King, Jr’s movement for justice making it national; how he perfected economic boycotts and corporate responsibility in the 21st century; how he changed American politics with his presidential runs; to how he influenced American foreign policy, Reverend Jackson has changed the nation and served in ways in which he never got credit. We pray for him, just as he fought for us.”
