The Rev. Jesse Jackson endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont for president on Sunday, offering support that the senator and his team hope will rally black voters to their side ahead of a make-or-break Democratic primary race in Michigan. "With the exception of Native Americans, African-Americans are the people who are most behind socially and economically in the United States, and our needs are not moderate," Jackson, a longtime civil rights activist and presidential candidate in 1984 and 1988, said in a statement. "A people far behind cannot catch up choosing the most moderate path."
