Reverend Al Sharpton called into More Music Mornings with Free to discuss the Trayvon Martin case, and the National Action Networkâ€™s 14th Annual Convention, which will take place next week in Washington DC. Listen to the interview below.
“People are tired of the gun violence. People are tired of being profiled. People are tired, whether they’re walking in a store, walking down the block, being picked on because of the color of their skin or how they dress. The real question is, what are we going to do about it? We know what we’re tired of. We know how we are, in many cases treated. We know about the guns, both that we use against each other and that others use. What are we going to do about it?
“That is why we’re having this convention… so we can talk solutions and strategies.”
The 14th Annual National Action Network Convention will take place April 11-14 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Every event during the week is free, but you have to register first to participate. Visit the National Action Network official website for more information on how you can get involved.
