LOCAL>> Rev. Al Sharpton – Righteous Troublemakers

The civil rights leader talks about his book about extraordinary activists from the past and present

The year 2020 was one of galvanizing unrest, finally bringing to mainstream attention countless racial and social injustices that have plagued American society for centuries.

Many activists have become prominent figures in the historical struggle for equal rights, but not nearly enough of them have gotten this attention.

During his virtual visit, the Reverend Al Sharpton, a civil rights leader and politician, will join us to tell their stories.

In his new book, Righteous Troublemakers: Untold Stories of the Social Justice Movement in America, Sharpton delves into the everyday lives of extraordinary activists from the past and present. Further, he provides personal details from the frontlines of 2020’s heightened racial activism—offering his readers a nuanced account of the stories many could only follow from device screens.

At INFORUM, Sharpton will leave his audience inspired to drive change in the name of truth and justice.
