The Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. will be in town Tuesday, appearing at Allen Temple Baptist Church to hand out $75,000 in college scholarships from his Rainbow PUSH Coalition to 40 Bay Area students. The coalition hands out nearly $500,000 per year in such scholarships across the nation; this is the second year in which the “PUSH for Excellence” initiative has benefitted Bay Area kids.
