Al Sharpton, Oprah

Making the rounds to promote his new book, The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton And The Path To American Leadership, MSNBC’s PoliticsNation host Rev. Al Sharpton sat down with Oprah Winfrey in a vulnerable interview that brought the controversial civil rights leaders to tears.

Discussing everything from being abandoned by his father to preaching to sister’s dolls as a young boy, Sharpton said that his success is all because of his mother, Ada Sharpton, who died on March 22, 2012 at the age of 87 following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Sharpton shared with Winfrey that his mother’s health deteriorated as his career skyrocketed. She never got a chance to witness his success, but she always had faith in him.

“When you know somebody loves you, is when they don’t have a guarantee and they invest in you anyway,” said an emotional Sharpton.
