Jackson urges black voters to 'use your voice'

Very busy with doing last minute organising for the JJ event but this is something from yesterday for you to mull over:

"The Reverend Jesse Jackson will launch a US-style crusade to stamp out apathy among black Britons and mobilise thousands to make their mark at the ballot box, when he comes to Britain this week. In an impassioned speech, the black civil rights activist will tell a 1,000-strong crowd that the very presence of black Britons 'is under threat'. 'There are those who seek to shackle your talent, and keep you at the bottom of society,' he will declare. 'You must seize the opportunity while you have it. You must use your vote and your voice.'"
