Joseph Jackson Jr. Tells His Tougaloo Nine Story on KPFK 90.7FM!
Updated: Sep 8, 2020
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!
