Walters, who led the first sit-in in Wichita, Kan., in 1958, and who served as deputy director of the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s run for the presidency in 1984, said, “It was hard for us, even in the Jackson campaign, to get our arms around this, the fact that there would be a black president of the United States, even though we were running.” (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
