PRESIDENT BIDEN TO JOIN KEEPIN’ IT REAL WITH REV. AL SHARPTON ON MLK DAY TO DISCUSS KEY ISSUES FACING BLACK AMERICANS—
Radio Appearance Comes as Nation Marks 60th Anniversary of Civil Rights Act
NEW YORK, NY (January 13) – President Biden will join Rev. Al Sharpton’s syndicated radio show, Keepin’ It Real, this Monday to mark Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and discuss key issues and policies impacting Black Americans in 2024. This year’s holiday, which falls on what would have been Dr. King’s 95th birthday, will put a specific focus on the 60th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that the civil rights leader steadfastly championed.
On Monday, Rev. Sharpton will interview President Biden from the National Action Network House of Justice in Harlem, where the organization will host its Annual King Day Public Policy Forum. President Biden will call into the show at 3 p.m. ET, at which point they will discuss the work still ahead to realize Dr. King’s vision of a just, fair nation.
The President’s appearance represents a decades long relationship with Rev. Sharpton. Last January, President Biden delivered the keynote address at the NAN King Day Breakfast in Washington D.C., where he detailed the Administration’s policy priorities for Black Americans. President Biden also heard the call from Rev. Sharpton and other civil rights leaders to host a summit against the rise in violent hate attacks after a series of mass shootings targeting Black, Latino, Jewish, AAPI, and other communities.
