I had a chance to sit down and talk with Jacob Blake, Sr., about his family’s long history with the Chicago Defender, his son, his family’s long-standing history of activism, and what his mission is now.
A GoFund Me account has been set up for Jacob Blake, Sr. to cover the family’s immediate expenses. These funds will be used to cover lost wages and other “Right Now” family expenses like bills, rent, mortgages for the next 2 months so they will not have to worry about them and so they can focus on Jacob Blake’s healing and recovery. To donate to the family, please click here.
