*Last week was a big one for Reverend Al Sharpton.
The founder of the National Action Network (NAN) hosted the Trumpet Awards, giving trophys to such celebrities as Mike Tyson, Queen Latifah and behind the scenes big-wigs like sports agent Joel Sigel.
The evening featured laughs and acknowledgement of community and faith for all honorees who were able to attend and accept their awards. Also, the classic oratory styling of Rev. Al himself were on full display as he held the audience for nearly two hours.
On October 10th, a celebration was held for Sharpton himself as friends, family members and business associates alike intermingled at Studio 48 as the “grown and sexy” tripped the night away to some of the funkiest hits the 70s and 80s could offer.
Sharpton and friends came out to speak at the coronation of the evening. Watch video footage from both proceedings below.
