The story of Roosevelt Jackson Sr., related to the Negro league. Last month, the Obama Foundation included Mr. Jackson’s story on the foundation’s webpage under Chicago Where it Began 2008 Campaign: Yes We Can. The foundation tweeted the story and posted it to their Instagram account in celebration of Black History Month. In December, Jackson will celebrate 100 years of life. We are planning a grand celebration in South Florida. Pictured is Jackson and his granddaughter Loretta Jackson Brown.
