Good Evening everyone.  Today is Thursday, August 8, 2013.  I'm Laura Gall your host of You Talk Too Much on Blogtalkradio. My theme this year is The African American Biography Series of 2013.  The purpose of this series is to document Black History on Internet Radio, Blogtalkradio.  The biography I bring to you tonight is none other than Mr. Al Sharpton!  Social, political activist and religious leader Mr. Al Sharpton was born Alfred Charles Sharpton, Jr. on October 3, 1954 in Brooklyn, N.Y.  He is outspoken and sometimes controversial.  Al Sharpton has become a leading figure in the fight against racial prejudice and injustice.  He developed his commanding speaking style as a child.  He became an ordained minister in the Pentecostal Church at the age of 10.  He often traveled to deliver sermons and once toured with Mahalia Jackson, famous gospel singer.  In the late 1960s Al Sharpton became active in the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, joining the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.  During the 1980s Al Sharpton got involved in many high profile cases in the New York City area that affected the African American Community and led several protests against what he believed were injustices and incidents of racial discrimination.  Today, Al Sharpton can be seen nightly at 6 pm on MSNBC T.V. on his show POLITICS NATION.  The African American Biography Series of 2013 is proud to bring to you the life of Mr. Al Sharpton and we thank you Al Sharpton for all you do and all you have done for the Black Community.  My call in number tonight is 1-714-242-5273
