    National Action Network Goes Live!

    National Action Network founded by Reverend Al Sharpton will go live across the nation on Saturday, June 10, 2017 as the newest addition to the growing scheduled line-up on Impact TV. 

    In a press release distributed through PR Newswire, the civil rights leader, Reverend Al Sharpton, is expected to preach from the scriptures, talk about the state of civil rights in the U.S. and bring a message that is intended to lift spirits toward action.  

    National Action Network will broadcast live at 10 AM EDT from House of Justice in Harlem, New York on the 100 percent African American-owned and operated Christian television network founded by Bishop Wayne T. Jackson and Dr.  Beverly Y. Jackson in 2010.   You may recall, Bishop Jackson hosted the then Republican Presidential candidate nominee, Donald J. Trump, for a one-on-one interview that aired on Impact TV last September.

    Impact TV is available on cable & satellite television providers Comcast Xfinity, Dish, DirectTV, Charter Spectrum and Time Warner Spectrum.  Check your local listings for availability

      Here I thought Rev Al, would lose prominence after Obama left office...

      But I was unaware of the 100% Black-owned TV Network.  This is good news.  Hey @harry brown, what do you think of Bishop Wayne T. Jackson?

      Another example of the Black Church positively impact the lives of Black Women and Men.

      @Troy hahaha! I guess you'd have to be a church-goer to believe that one.  The black church is no friend to black women.  Any woman who can't see that is very much brainwashed about  African antiquity and how it relates to spirituality.  Remember the black church arose out of U.S slavery... not from African practices. 

       But here's where I do give  credit to the black church as I do HBCUs - both are a dominate force in black media.   You will find I give a lot space to the black church and its activities -on The LeadStory because  the black church as a medium  is the conscience of Main Stream Media

      By the way, Bishop Jackson is the same man who did a one-on-one interview with 45 when he was a candidate.
