Synopsis

Al Sharpton by Wayne D'Orio

The Reverend Al Sharpton has made his name as one of the modern leaders of the civil rights movement and an outspoken supporter of international human rights. His supporters readily participate in marches he calls seemingly on a moment's notice and victims' families continue to ask for his help. However, his many opponents believe Sharpton is a publicity hound who uses his power as an African-American leader to force corporations into paying him. Sharpton has run for public office on several occasions, including the presidency, and is a fixture of the modern media, appearing on numerous national television shows and hosting a daily radio show. Although Sharpton is considered one of the most controversial figures in American society today, his influential voice is heard in the halls of power, including the White House. In Al Sharpton, read how this civil rights leader has brought attention to many human rights and civil rights issues over the past few decades.
