From a community correspondent:

After speaking today at the Statehouse Convention Center, Jesse Jackson went back to the Clinton School of Public Service for lunch where he visited with Little Rock Niner Minnijean Brown Trickey and her daughter, Spirit; City Manager Bruce Moore and his wife, Lena; Odies Wilson of the city of Little Rock and Little Rock School Board President Dr. Katherine Mitchell.  Virgil Miller, co-chairman of the Little Rock Central High 50th anniversary commission, briefed Rev. Jackson on the plans for September 2007 and invited him to attend.  Students from Helena who happened to be touring the Clinton library and the Clinton school got a special treat to meet, greet and have photos made with him.
