Description : Abstract
Deborah Wang reports that Boston supporters of Jesse Jackson (African American political leader) are undecided about whether to campaign for Michael Dukakis (Democratic nominee for US President). She notes that the supporters recently met to discuss their role in the upcoming campaign. Wang's report includes footage of a meeting of Jackson supporters. Jackson delegates Mel King, Saundra Graham, Juanita Wade, and Byron Rushing are among the leaders of the meeting. The leaders say that the Dukakis campaign should not take the votes of Jackson supporters for granted. Wang reports that some Jackson supporters will not support Dukakis under any circumstances. Wang interviews Jackson supporters Darryl Heller, Trent Pettus and Myra McAdoo. All three supporters criticize the Dukakis campaign. Wang interviews Philip Stanley (Dukakis campaign) about the role of Jackson supporters in the Dukakis campaign. Stanley says that the Dukakis campaign has been meeting with Jackson supporters and that the campaign is taking no votes for granted. Wang's report includes footage of Dukakis and Jackson at the 1988 Democratic National Convention and footage of Jackson embarking on a voter registration campaign.
