With over 40 years of experience as a community leader, politician, minister and advocate, the Rev. Al Sharpton is one of America’s most-renowned civil rights leaders. Now “The Rev.”, as he is affectionately called by close friends and supporters, is bringing his powerful voice to radio and getting the answers to real questions with his entertaining new daily talk show the Al Sharpton Show. Whether running for President of the United States in 2004 or leading civil rights protests, Sharpton’s highly visible career began at the tender age of four when he preached his first sermon. A successful civil rights career soon followed helping Sharpton hold such notable positions as the Youth Director of New York’s Operation Breadbasket, Director of Ministers for National Rainbow Push coalition, and founder of his own broad-based progressive civil rights organization, the National Action Network.
