Rev. Jesse Jackson leads pro-bingo march in Montgomery


Yes Bingo ! ! !
Give me Bingo, or give me death??
The Rev. Jesse Jackson led a march of about 200 people down Dexter Avenue to the Alabama Capitol to rally supporting bingo jobs in the state..........

Jackson said the bingo debate ongoing in Alabama is a voting rights issue and a matter of economic justice. Counties voted for bingo, Jackson said, and the vote should be respected...............

"We demand jobs and justice and voting rights," Jackson said on the steps of the Alabama Capitol...............

Rally leaders evoked Civil Rights era imagery during the march.Marchers sang, "We shall overcome" and the demonstration paused to pray in front of Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, the church once led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
