A very special guest - The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. - Founder and President of Rainbow PUSH Coalition! Marília and I will speak with the Rev. Jackson about the national struggle for voting right protections, DC statehood and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. The Rev. Jesse Jackson set the tone for an office that is now more than 30 years old. His leadership on the issue of DC statehood spans more than four decades and his advocacy continues to this day. We'll ask Rev. Jackson about the very first days of the DC Congressional Statehood Delegation and what he thinks our prospects are for passing the Washington, DC Admission Act, which currently has 46 cosponsors in the Senate.
