Rev. Al Sharpton Preaches the Roof Off Michael Brown’s Funeral (VIDEO)

Rev. Al Sharpton Preaches the Roof Off Michael Brown’s Funeral (VIDEO)

| On 26, Aug 2014

Rev. Al Sharpton, a vocal civil rights leader and MSNBC primetime host, gave the eulogy at the funeral of Michael Brown on Monday in Ferguson, Missouri.

Sharpton’s speech was notable not just for its decibel level, but more so for its call-to-action that we should not let Brown’s death be in vain. The Reverend was keeping it VERY real about the current state of policing in the U.S. and where we stand as both black and American communities. We must do better and expect more from the powers that be.

Sharpton has been on the ground and in close contact with Brown’s family since just after his shooting death on August 9. Brown, who was unarmed at the time, was killed by Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department after an apparent shoplifting incident.

  1. speak my piece

    I know our next generation of leaders is waiting in wings. It will be a variation on the old template of the black male preacher. It may even be a woman, but I know there is a new generation of leaders ready to move the community forward.

  2. Rev. Sharpton showed up at the funeral yesterday. Many people see him on MSNBC or at rallies and forget he was first a preacher. We were all reminded yesterday. He took his text, made his points about family, community, and justice. Then he closed with salvation and God’s grace. He was on a heat seeking mission throughout and left no stone unturned. His criticism and call to action was widespread and accurate. I hope the people listened. I was moved and felt challenged to not fall asleep on my post in the fight for justice.
