Description : Abstract
Campaign staff work at the local headquarters of the Rainbow Coalition in the South End. The workers speak on the telephone, sort through papers and assemble handouts. Boyce Slayman (political consultant) speaks to some of the workers. He shows them a newspaper headline about Jackson's top position on the Massachusetts' primary ballot. The workers continue their tasks. The tape includes shots of Jackson campaign pins, shots of Jackson campaign letterhead and shots of Rainbow Coalition posters. The tape also features shots of a photo of Jackson and Mel King (community activist) and shots of the exterior of the campaign headquarters. Campaign signs for King's mayoral candidacy remain in the window of the headquarters.
