Since bursting on the national political scene in New York City in the late 1980s, preacher and activist Reverend Al Sharpton has been at the center of national conversations revolving around race. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s horrific murder in 2020, the veteran civil rights leader has grabbed global headlines, expanding the reach of his powerful bullhorn against America’s deafening complacency in the fight against racial injustice — amplifying the ugly truths about the ongoing impact of structural racism on this nation many would prefer to ignore. LOUDMOUTH puts an unprecedented spotlight on the veteran activist and asks whether Al Sharpton has gone mainstream, or if America has finally decided to listen.
