Democratic candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke at two locations throughout Atlanta, rallying crowds and star power. 

Reverend Jesse Jackson threw his support behind Clinton at the Rainbow Push Coalition luncheon at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Atlanta.

"It'll be up to me-- assuming we get this done-- to be a president to build on what we have achieved," Clinton said, promising to move the economy forward with more jobs for African Americans and praising President Obama for his economic policies.

After Clinton wrapped her speech, she quickly rushed to Clark Atlanta University, where crowds clamored to get into the gymnasium.

Stars and political figures who made an appearance include Monica, Usher, Kelly Price, basketball star Grant Hill and mayor Kasim Reed.

Protesters from "Black Lives Matter" also attempted to interrupt Clinton, but the former Secretary of State directed cheers back to her policies.

"Black lives do matter... and we have to take action together!" Clinton said, causing cheers to erupt.

GOP officials were at the rally to drum up support for the Republican Party.

"She's had many opportunities to impact the justice department. She didn't," said Leo Smith, the Minority Engagement Director for the Georgia GOP, believing many of Clinton's promises were empty words.

Clinton plans to stump in two Tennessee cities in November.
