Rev. Jesse Jackson talks Mizzou

Two top officials at the University of Missouri are stepping down after student protests and a hunger strike over racial tensions on campus. The University system’s president has resigned and the school’s chancellor will move into a different post at the end of this year. The protests reached a breaking point this week after Missouri’s football team threatened to boycott an upcoming game — a move that would’ve cost the school at least a million dollars. Civil rights activist the Reverend Jesse Jackson shares his thoughts on the University of Missouri and the powerful role that student athletes played in this situation and others like it.
