Richmond: Council will honor Fred Jackson

The Richmond City Council on Tuesday will mark Black History Month with a proclamation “honoring Fred Davis Jackson for his exemplary service to the community.”

The proclamation cites Jackson’s longtime role as a community peacemaker and calls him “an inspiration to all who are seeking to overcome challenges.”

Jackson, as noted last month, is overcoming his own challenges since being diagnosed with liver cancer. He continues to fight the good fight as he undergoes treatment.

Well-wishers who want to send Jackson a note can address it in care of Elaine and Paul Foster, his sister and brother-in-law, at 2831 Shane Drive, Richmond CA 94806.

The proclamation will be presented at the meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the council chamber at 440 Civic Center Plaza.
