Al Sharpton, asserts NAN “Isn’t an Al Sharpton fan club.” The prominent civil rights activist discusses the network’s upcoming convention and its underlying mission: service to the people. “This is about different people doing what they do as a network together. That’s why we named it a network.” In this year’s events, President Obama will be the headline speaker to discuss today’s key issues including immigration, education, and healthcare reform.
