Jesse Jackson hospitalized after hitting head in fall at Howard University
The Rev. Jesse Jackson was hospitalized on Monday after he fell during a visit to Howard University to advocate on behalf of students protesting campus living conditions.
The 80-year-old civil rights leader took a spill and hit his head while entering a building on the Washington, DC, campus, according to his spokesman Frank Watkins.
Jackson was taken to Howard University Hospital where he will be kept overnight for observation. He underwent a CT scan that came back normal, Watkins said.
