On the eve of a Nazi Party rally on the steps of the Hamilton County Courthouse, a world-renowned civic leader made a trip to the Scenic City. The Reverend Jesse Jackson took to the pulpit at the Olivet Baptist church.
      He urged Chattanoogans not to go protest the scheduled hour and a half rally at the court house.
      Instead, simply stay away and let positive voices be heard. Jackson was featured as part of a Peace and Love rally held by the church in response tomorrow's planned rally.
     Jackson says it's important for Chattanoogans to take the high road on this occasion.
     "We do not show up, not because we are afraid but because we are wise. It is hard for them to clap with one hand. They come for two reasons either to spread violence, which is their record, or to incite provocation."
      Many community groups are holding their own events away from the rally to spread a more positive message.
