Civil Rights Leaders Gather Against Voter Suppression

ATLANTA – (WAOK)  The Reverend Al Sharpton,  who founded the National Action Network announced today,  with a number of other civil rights and community leaders the huge significance of this year’s march from Selma to Montgomery.  Sharpton and others gathered at NAN Atlanta headquarters to denounce what he calls the ongoing suppression of voters rights,  and a real threat he says to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.   The historical legislation resulted in part after the bloody confrontation that took place in Selma, Alabama  back in March of 1965.   You can hear more from Rev Sharpton right here and on Sunday Straight Talk on both WAOK 1380 and V-103,  between 5:00-6:00am.
