Education led Jeff to advocate justice as an instrumental voice in the Civil Rights Movement. Jeff marched with Dr. King, documented the lives of migrant workers, and wrote articles promoting equality for all people. "In your light, I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art."
