dr. jackson speech from iman's annual fundraising dinner

"While it was a cold Chicago night punctuated with the occasional snow flurries, people from all over the Chicagoland area packed the house Saturday evening at Malcolm X College to attend IMAN's Seventh Annual Fundraising Dinner. We once again well-exceeded our expectations concerning attendance and through the gracious fundraising talents of Dr. Ingrid Mattson and the many generous people in the room met our relatively modest but achievable fundraising goal for the evening. Dr Jackson and Imam Zaid both offered riveting and inspiring talks while the dignitaries, scholars, activists and artists in the hall all humbled and overwhelmed us with their supportive and profoundly important presence."
