The Rev Jesse Jackson was taken to hospital in Washington on Monday, after falling and hitting his head while helping Howard University students protesting living conditions on campus, a spokesman said.

Jackson was released on Tuesday after an overnight stay and was back at the university working with students, Jackson’s spokesman, Frank Watkins, said.

Jackson, who has Parkinson’s disease, has previously been hospitalized twice this year. He checked into a Chicago hospital for a breakthrough Covid-19 infection in August and required weeks of physical therapy as Covid affected his Parkinson’s and his ability to walk and talk. He also had gallbladder surgery earlier in the year.

Since then, Jackson has resumed a travel and public-speaking schedule.
