Alfred Sharpton, the civil rights activist and former White House adviser for President Barack Obama, took to Instagram to share a video dancing at the Essence Fest.


In the short recording, posted on July 7, Sharpton was portrayed wearing a light grey suit with a black shirt and yellow tie while enjoying the music and showing a group of women his best moves.

At the end of the recording, Sharpton hugged a woman, who seemed to be having a great time. For the caption, Sharpton admitted that he was ‘showing some moves at NAN/Essence annual reception in NOLA.’

As soon as he uploaded that video, his fans and followers took to the comment section to praise the 63-year-old man and share their thoughts.


One of them was Instagram user @jackieb.5682, who pointed out that they loved Sharpton’s moves and urged him to go ahead. User Willa Johnson added that she had no idea Sharpton could move like that.


According to the Essence Festival’s website, Sharpton is the founder and President of the National Action Network (NAN), a not-for-profit civil rights organization created in 1991.


It has more than 100 subdivisions nationwide, including a Washington, DC Bureau and regional offices across the US. Sharpton is one of the country’s most-renowned civil rights leaders.

Even Obama recognized it when he was still the President of the US, and he labeled Sharpton as ‘the voice of the voiceless and a champion for the downtrodden.’


Apart from that, Sharpton has been the host of the national talk radio program Keppin’ It Real with Al Sharpton since January 2006. In August 2011, Sharpton became the host of the political talk show PoliticsNation.

He has also written two books: Al on America, and The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path to American Leadership, and co-written one: Go and Tell Pharaoh.
