Civil Rights Leader Al Sharpton Enacts Nonpartisan Change
As one of the nation's most prominent civil rights leaders, the charismatic reverend has shifted the political and cultural establishment on race, gender and social-economic issues. When Sharpton speaks, the nation listens. His moving oratory inspires millions through television, radio, print, the Internet—basically, any medium where words, and conviction, matter. His civil rights foundation, National Action Network, betters the lives of thousands, while his public speeches—honed from the age of four, when he first began preaching—leave audiences understanding why
Newsweek captured just how important Sharpton is for America, recently, writing, "If we didn't have an Al Sharpton, we would have to create one." Echoing the sentiment, 60 Minutes stated that "Sharpton is the go-to Black leader today." Recently, his direct actions influenced police department reform across the U.S., and he continues to fight for equality in education—where his confrontations with media over stereotyping have held people accountable for racism. Most importantly, his work, buoyed by unflagging integrity, has earned respect from leaders of all political leanings. Sharpton's gifted, immediately recognizable, and galvanic speaking is unmatched when it comes to getting people out of their seats and into a movement.
