Going to college on a track scholarship, all Jeff Johnson wanted to do was run and go to the Olympics. While at the University of Toledo, he began working with the Black Student Union, which ended up taking out time from sports. When his coach told him to drop his activism or lose his scholarship, Jeff chose activism and finished his college career with a different outlook on life. He has since devoted his life to working with young people and college students.
