Jackson tickets gone; see speech on closed-circuit TV

No tickets remain for the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s speech Thursday (Jan. 25) in the Lenhart Grand Ballroom of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

However, the speech can be seen via closed-circuit broadcast in the Union Theater, Multi-purpose Room (Room 228) and the Falcon’s Nest Food Court. Admission to those areas will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

The 1,000 free tickets required for seating in the ballroom were claimed by 2 p.m. Jan. 16—the first day they were available.

The Rev. Jackson, a former assistant to Dr. Martin Luther King, will discuss the late civil rights leader in his address, “Honoring His Dream … Making It Our Reality.” The program will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday.
