Alfred Charles "Al" Sharpton, Jr. (born October 3, 1954) is an American Baptist minister, civil rights activist, and television/radio talk show host.[1][2] In 2004, he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. presidential election. He hosts his own radio talk show, Keepin' It Real,[3] and he makes regular guest appearances on Fox News (such as The O'Reilly Factor)[4][5][6]CNN, and MSNBC. In 2011, he was named the host of MSNBC's PoliticsNation, a nightly talk show.[7]

Sharpton's supporters praise "his ability and willingness to defy the power structure that is seen as the cause of their suffering"[8] and consider him "a man who is willing to tell it like it is".[8] Former New York Mayor Ed Koch, a one-time foe, said that Sharpton deserves the respect he enjoys among Black Americans: "He is willing to go to jail for them, and he is there when they need him."[9]
