Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, comes on the 54th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where King delivered his famed ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.”Sharpton said last week, “We want to convene ministers from all faiths to make a moral statement that no matter what party is in office, there are certain moral things that should be nonnegotiable.”
