Rev. Al Sharpton to Address the Legislature

He's a former Democratic presidential candidate, media pundit and former tour manager for James Brown and he's coming to the Roundhouse.

The Rev. Al Sharpton is scheduled to address the state Legislature on Friday, Feb. 11 as part of African-American Day.

No matter what you think of his politics and past controversies, Rev. Sharpton is a heck of a speaker. At the 2004 Democratic Convention in Boston,  except for some state senator from Illinois, Sharpton  gave the only truly exciting speeches at the whole shindig -- as then Gov. Bill Richardson, who had to follow him found out.
