Al Sharpton Rallies Black Leaders For NAN Forum

Early Saturday morning, hundreds of eager New Yorkers and out-of-town visitors stood in a line wrapped around First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York, to attend Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN) leadership forum. "Measuring the Movement," a featured program of the four-day conference, was geared toward a 12-month action plan for Black leadership. Authorities from social, political, and economic fields tackled topics as diverse as the need for lighting in a local park to the high drop-out rate among Black teens.
