Commander Jim Jackson has a story to tell about American heroes.  An authentic, inspiring, and compelling story about men and women in the Armed Services who through courage, guts, and tenacity, broke sound barriers and race barriers, flew in combat and in space, commanded ships and served as America’s highest ranking admirals, astronauts, and pilots. 

These heroes are African Americans.  And their stories are remarkable because they bridged a great divide between what was… and what was possible—entering service branches and professions at a time when African Americans were virtually barred from participating.

Commander Jackson, a former Navy aviator and graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, identifies with these heroes who helped pave the way for himself and other men and women of color. With a dynamic and engaging personality, Jackson and his professional Speaker and Exhibit Series are highly sought-after by speaker’s bureaus, visionary businesses, colleges, universities, museums, government agencies, and many others. His story is about African Americans. But his message is universal.
