As one of the nation’s most-renowned civil rights leaders, Rev. Sharpton has been praised by President Barack Obama as “the voice of the voiceless and a champion for the downtrodden,” and by former President George W. Bush who said that “Al cares just as much as I care about making sure every child learns to read, write, add and subtract.”
Rev. Sharpton is currently the only African-American host of an evening talk show called “PoliticsNation” on MSNBC that analyzes the top political and social news of the day featuring the country’s leading newsmakers. He also hosts a nationally syndicated radio show “Keepin it Real” that is heard daily all over the country, and two local New York radio shows.
