Pictured to the left is Kenneth Jackson with a photo he took on a visit to Washington, D.C., in 2011.

Jackson is the son of Odell and the late Napoleon Bonaparte of Lincoln. He is also the grandson of Glen Alice Banks of Lincoln.

Both Napoleon and his mother, Glen Alice, were often active in causes that helped to promote equality among the races. Kenny and his siblings therefore grew up with a keen understanding and appreciation for Martin Luther King Jr.
