The Rev. Al Sharpton Show
Weekdays, 2PM to 4PM
With over 40 years of experience as a community leader,
politician, minister and advocate, 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
Operation Breadbasket, Director of Ministers for National
Rainbow Push coalition, and founder of his own broad-based
progressive civil rights organization, the National Action
Sharpton’s stance, in his own words, has taken him “from
the streets to the suites” and his irrefutable impact on
national politics has been applauded by both supporters and
non-supporters alike. Sharpton continues to challenge the
American political establishment to be inclusive to all
people regardless of race, gender, class or beliefs.
In his 2003 book, “Al on America” Sharpton describes this
and states his book should be used “to fight against the
pro-big business, anti-labor, pro-death penalty matrix that
has crippled America, and to talk about where I think we
ought to be going in the 21st century."
Sharpton will draw on his experience as a grass roots
organizer, community activist and politician to offer “real
deal” commentary, practical answers and solutions.
