WATCH: Interview with Jesse Jackson

As part of this week's cover story about Jesse Jackson and the 50th anniversary of the civil rights struggle in Greensboro that forced desegregation in public places, check out this video of a portion of YES! Weekly's interview with Jackson this June at the International Civil Rights Center & Museum.

In the clip, Jackson answered reporter Eric Ginsburg's questions about parts of Greensboro, people he remembers, his first time speaking before a large crowd and the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement.

Thanks to Gloria Pitts and Courtney Jackson at NC A&T University, Jordan Stowe, Robinson, de Berry and Smith for their help.
