The 80-year-old attended a town meeting with Howard President Wayne A.I. Frederick and students. They protested over mold and rodents in the residential halls.

Rev. Jackson was entering a building on campus and fell as reported by Jackson spokesman Frank Watkins. We don’t have much information of the cause of his fall.

“While meeting with various administrators, including Dr. Wayne Frederick, Rev. Jackson sustained an injury upon entering the Blackburn Center,” the university wrote on Twitter.

Jackson was admitted to Howard University Hospital. His CT scan and tests came back normal as  confirmed by Watkins. Of course, doctors suggested that he stays at the hospital overnight for further observation.

“Family, he’s resting comfortably & doing well,” his daughter Santita Jackson, wrote on Twitter.

Jackson has Parkinson’s disease. He was admitted to hospital twice this year.

In August, Jackson and his wife tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized. Jackson is vaccinated but he had to receive intensive physical therapy after the virus affected his Parkinson’s. He had difficulty walking and talking.

That’s not all. Jackson underwent gallbladder surgery earlier this year.

He returned to his activities as public speaker.

Jackson turned 80 in October.
