Al Sharpton coming to Birmingham Wednesday

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Reverend Al Sharpton will be in the Magic City for a grand opening on Wednesday as part of his grassroots campaign aimed at improving voting rights.

The program is called the Freedom Summer Headquarters, and it’s designed to support voter registration while fighting suppression.

Alabama is one of eight states part of the program. The local headquarters has a temporary location off First Avenue North and will close once the November elections are complete.
