According to our records, it's been some time since the Rev. Al Sharpton
has visited our fair city.
Yes, sadly for us, Sharpton never took up the Riverfront Times
' suggestion that he move to St. Louis
and run in last year's mayoral race. (Though just last October Sharpton did weigh in on a local issue when he spoke up against Rush Limbaugh
buying the St. Louis Rams.)
Now, we're happy to report that Sharpton is returning to St. Louis this Saturday to serve as the keynote speaker for the 24th Annual "Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration
" at Harris Stowe State University.
The program kicks off at 6:30 p.m. at the school's main auditorium and is free and open to the public.
