Sometimes, you see Al Sharpton and you think that he was never young. Actually, he was. Sharpton used to run with James Brown and other people in the entertainment industry during the early part of his career. Unfortunately, this is also how Sharpton ended up becoming cozy with members of the mafia, since they were also part of the music industry at that time.
This video shows Sharpton giving a plaque to Brown, thanking him for his music. It’s amazing that his voice hasn’t changed since he was a kid, and he seemed to be poised for national prominence even back then. Don Cornelius is iconic in his own right, creating Soul Train from nothing and making it one of the biggest black shows in history.

Is he a leader in black America or a nuisance?
