Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.

“Congressman Payne stood out as a frame of reference because of his in-depth knowledge of every African leader and the challenges their countries faced. He used his knowledge and scholarly pursuits to help shape U.S. policies as they related to Africa. As he pursued expanding mutually beneficial ties with Africa, freeing [Nelson] Mandela, ending colonialism and expanding democracy in Africa, Donald Payne was a force for hope.”
