Rev. Al Sharpton will recieve BET’s Humanitarian Award

BET is honoring Rev. Al Sharpton with its Humanitarian Award at their annual BET Awards, according to the New York Daily News. Sharpton has made his mark fighting for social justice. The recent cases of  Trayvon Martin and Ramarley Graham are just two examples of the causes that Rev. Sharpton has championed. The New York Daily News has the story:

The Rev. Al Sharpton has made his mark fighting for the “voiceless.”

For that — and much more — BET is honoring him with its Humanitarian Award at the cable network’s annual showcase, the Daily News has learned.

Recent examples of his activism include the fights he helped wage with the families of a pair of slain teenagers, Trayvon Martin, of Florida, and Ramarley Graham of the Bronx.

The Harlem-based civil rights activist has also led the charge against the NYPD’s controversial street interrogation practices, which have been used disproportionately in the black and Latino communities, and he’s marched for voter rights.
