Reverend Al Sharpton joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show this morning to announce the collaboration of two significant leaders in the black community to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, saying, “Martin Luther King III and the National Action Network, and Tom Joyner, all of us will be in Washington on Saturday, August 24th.”
Sharpton, the voice of justice is teaming up with the legendary man behind the mic, Tom Joyner to remind people the fight for justice and equality is still occurring and it is important to not forget Martin Luther King’s dream.
Sharpton, exclaimed this morning on the TJMS:
“ That is why this August we’re going back to Washington, not to commemorate the march, to continue the march. It’s not a commemoration, it’s a continuation. And we’re glad to announce that you’re coming.” Adding, “we are calling on people all over the country that are concerned and upset about the voting rights, that are concerned and upset about black unemployment is still twice as high than anyone in the country. They are concerned about education. Meet us in Washington. The dream is not fulfilled. “
Ending with a final call to action, Sharpton says it is time to stop the “complaining”and move to action like other groups have done in order to get their voices heard, he stated:
“It’s time to quit grumbling and complaining. We must show a large presence. Everybody who has gone to Washington stood up for their gender. We have not done it since the President has been reelected. August 24th is the date to continue the fight to make the dream come true. And Tom will be there, Sybil, all of us will be there. “
