Paltalk hosts highlights of the live video and voice chat with Reverend Jesse Jackson recently held on The People Speak, the audience-interactive social issues program broadcast into and out of Paltalk, the world’s largest Internet community.

An interactive session with the audience followed the discussion, during which Paltalk members in the virtual radio auditorium were able to directly ask questions of Reverend Jackson that covered a wide range of topics from current labor issues to the ramifications of using derogatory racial terms.
