Jesse Jackson Hospitalized After Fall At Howard U

The Washington Post reports:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson was hospitalized Monday after falling during a visit to Howard University, in support of students protesting living conditions on the Washington campus, according to a spokesman.

The 80-year-old civil rights leader was meeting with Howard President Wayne A.I. Frederick and other administrators when he “sustained an injury upon entering” a campus building, the school said in a late Monday tweet. Jackson was then “taken to a hospital by a university administrator,” the school said.

Jackson was entering a campus building when he fell and hit his head, Frank Watkins, a spokesman for Jackson, told The Washington Post. He was taken to Howard University Hospital where he underwent a series of tests, including a CT scan, which came back normal.
