Jesse Jackson on the black vote


The civil rights leader Jesse Jackson is to address the Cambridge Union with a speech on human rights in the United States and abroad. He will also take questions on subjects ranging from Barack Obama's first year in office to healthcare reform. Mr Jackson explains how last week he helped launch a registration drive by campaign group Operation Black Vote, unveiling a 100-foot billboard poster bearing the slogan: "Expect the best from yourself and society. Register to vote".
