Joseph Jackson Jr. Tells His Tougaloo Nine Story on KPFK 90.7FM!
Updated: Sep 8
The story of Joseph Jackson Jr., hero of the Tougaloo Nine, that graced our cover last week is now going on the air. The Anaheim resident took part in a historic sit-in at Jackson, Mississippi's whites-only public library on March 27, 1961 before disappearing into OC obscurity for decades. He'll be recounting it all in an interview I recorded May 31 for the Weekly cover story and edited for an hour-long Sojourner Truth Radio with Margaret Prescod special. The program airs this morning from 7-8 a.m., so tune-in to KPFK 90.7FM Los Angeles now!
