There are 2 things that make Charles "C-Jack" Jackson a valuable treasure for the Syracuse community. One is that he documents all of the events that define who we are as community. Just as important, C-Jack is always striving to develop, mentor, and give a platform for up and coming talent. One of the ways he does this is through his C-Jack Run Talent Showcase that he presents each year at the Van Robinson Pan African Village at the NYS Fair. This year, will be the 13th year of the talent showcase and I had a chance to talk to him about it.
