The Nation

March 12, 1985

Jesse Jackson was arrested outside the South African Embassy in Washington along with two of his sons in an anti-apartheid demonstration that the civil rights leader called "non-cooperation with evil." Jackson and sons Jesse Jr., 20, and Jonathan, 19, were arrested after going to the door of the embassy and holding hands while singing "We Shall Overcome." The arrests of the three Jacksons was the latest in daily demonstrations outside the South African Embassy in protest of that country's racial segregation policies.
