Jackson tickets gone; see speech on closed-circuit
BOWLING GREEN, O.—No tickets remain for the Rev. Jesse Jackson's 7 p.m. speech Thursday (Jan. 25) in the Lenhart Grand Ballroom of Bowling Green State University's Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
However, the speech can be seen by closed-circuit broadcast in the Union Theater, Multi-purpose Room (Room 228) and the Falcon's Nest Food Court. Admission to those areas will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The 1,000 free tickets required for seating in the ballroom were claimed by 2 p.m. Jan. 16—the first day they were available.
Jackson, a former assistant to Dr. Martin Luther King, will discuss the late civil rights leader in his address, “Honoring His Dream … Making It Our Reality.”
