Chants of "stop the violence" and "save the children" echoed through the gymnasium of Moraine Elementary in Northville on Tuesday as the Rev. Jesse Jackson addressed students during a visit related to Black History Month.
The civil rights pioneer who had a personal friendship with the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., preached a message of peaceful conflict resolution, acceptance of others' differences and nonviolence to the students and teachers in attendance.
Check back with Northville Patch on Wednesday for more on the Rev. Jesse Jackson's visit.
