While attending the Wall Street Project Economic Summit in New York City, Roland Martin, Host of NewsOne Now caught up with Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. and got his take on President Barack Obama appointing a Black woman to the Supreme Court.
Rev. Jackson told Martin, “We need a new Supreme Court Justice who is sensitive to America as America is unfolding and I think the President is right to nominate someone, the Senate has to obviously vet them fairly.”
