Video, Rev. Jesse Jackson: "Build Houses, Not Jails! Keep Hope Alive!"


By BillyClub - Posted on 08 November 2012

On Thursday evening, Nov. 8, 2012, a rally to stop Governor Martin O'Malley from building a new youth jail facility in Baltimore City and instead to reallocate those funds ($104 million-plus) to a more constructive use, was held at the War Memorial Building. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, the noted Civil Rights leader, was the main speaker. He urged the governments to convene a plan to "build houses, not jails and to keep hope alive." Excerpts from Rev. Jackson's remarks are on this video.
