Jackson has been one of the most prominent leaders of the American civil rights movement since the 1960s, when he marched alongside Martin Luther King and helped raise funds for the cause.

“Doctors are currently monitoring the condition of both,” as detailed in the statement from Jackson’s organization, who added that “there are no further updates at the moment.”
