Does America Need a 21st Century Civil Rights Movement?

Reverend Al Sharpton has been referred to as the most influential civil rights leader of the past ten years. He has been the major spokesman for those protesting the police killings of Eric Garner in New York and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. and has been the go-to community liaison on race matters for both President Obama and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. But he can’t do it alone. What present day emerging leaders do you think will have an impact over the next ten years?

What’s Your Take? Does America need a 21st-century civil rights movement?

After Ferguson,if anyone thinks we don't should have their head examined.Reverend Al and the National Action Network have gone "NEW SCHOOL" utilizing TV,Radio and Social Media to hold on to the boomer generation as well as the young emerging leaders.Same principles , just upgraded strategies

YES

He can't do it alone.Our own Virginia's King Salim Kalfani has been in the struggle for years without the support of the people and without the support of the NAACP

Yes we do need a 21st Century civil rights leader and by default All Sharpton is that leader.

Yes,we do.I think we look for leaders in all the wrong places.Young unnamed people on twitter overturned Egypt. Let's look at the Occupy Wall Street model.

I am not sure if we would trust or follow a leader. So many so called leaders and preachers that have used us to fattten their wallets have left a bad taste in my mouth.
