Rev. Al Sharpton to Appear in Philadelphia for Loudmouth Documentary Screening and Voter Engagement

Learn about the life and legacy of Rev. Al Sharpton, founder and president of National Action Network (NAN) with this timely documentary, Loudmouth that explores how he rose from poverty-stricken West Indian immigrant beginnings to become one America's most prominent civil rights leaders today! Loudmouth will be showing on Saturday, October 29th as part of the Philadelphia Film Festival.

The film chronicles more than 40 years of Rev. Sharpton’s journey to becoming one of the most recognizable Civil Rights leaders of today. From his early activism to his modern-day legacy, the documentary tells the story of his unrelenting commitment to fighting against systemic injustice, racism, and white supremacy in the United States. The documentary premiered as the closing film at the Tribeca Film Festival in June. It features in-depth interviews with Rev. Sharpton and never-before-seen footage and was written, directed, and produced by Josh Alexander, as well as produced by Daniel J. Chalfen, Mike Jackson, and Kedar Massenburg.

The Philadelphia Film Festival is an annual event and was founded in 1991 by the Philadelphia Film Society. Tickets to attend are free and can be secured at https://filmadelphia.org/schedule/

The following day, Sunday, October 30th, Rev. Sharpton will join Bright Hope Baptist Church for its 10:15 AM service and will lead parishioners starting at approximately 11:15 AM. With the midterm elections less than two weeks away, Rev. Sharpton will speak to why it’s especially important Black Americans turn out to vote this year.  Sharpton NAN have sought to activate the Black community on key issues that are on the ballot this November 8th

Such efforts come at an especially crucial moment for civil rights in the United States with violent hate crimes against Black Americans on the rise; protections under the 1965 Voting Rights Act facing their greatest threat in nearly 60 years; and a woman’s right to choose being taken away across the country.
