Rev. Al Sharpton Announces Chicago Chapter of the National Action Network; Continues To Pursue Hip-Hop Decency Initiative

sharpton1.jpgOn Wednesday, August 1, Reverend Al Sharpton will be in Chicago at the historic Regal Theater to announce the formation of a Chicago chapter of his National Action Network (NAN). NAN is one of the leading civil rights organizations in the nation, working to promote a modern civil rights agenda in the United States. The newly formed Chicago branch is one of the 36 chapters of the National Action Network. The first initiative of the Chicago NAN branch is entitled The NAN Decency Initiative National Day of Outrage, which looks to ban the usage of words such as “nigga,” “bitch” and “ho” in hip-hop music. Rev. Al Sharpton will lead a protest in 20 cities, including Chicago on August 7, to call for the withdrawal of public investments from record companies that refuse to clean up hip-hop lyrics.
