DETAILS: The Rev. Al Sharpton is one of the most visible and dynamic black leaders in the world today. An outspoken political activist for nearly two decades, Rev. Sharpton has built a social movement that has empowered the disenfranchised and given voice to the frustrations of thousands. He is currently running for President of the United States. While Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is the candidate for the Democratic nomination for President, Sharpton advisors announced today that Sharpton will support Kerry and that Kerry has agreed to a series of meetings between the two to discuss Rev.
