Al Sharpton's Mother Dies at 87

Source: NBC



The 87-year-old mother of the Rev. Al Sharpton has died.

His spokeswoman says Ada Sharpton passed away early Thursday morning in Dothan, Ala., following a long battle with Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

Rachel Noerdlinger says Sharpton will fly to Alabama to make arrangements for his mother's funeral after attending a rally Thursday evening in Sanford, Fla., for Trayvon Martin.

Martin is a black teenager who was shot to death by a Hispanic neighborhood watch captain in Florida. His parents attended a march for their son in New York City on Wednesday evening.

3. Very sad news.

I guess we're all related around here. Sharpton is my cousin's cousin.

7. Only because it's about Al

But who was it who decided that he's a good host on MSNBC. I don't see how anyone can stand listening to his voice for an hour. I'm praying for the day they replace him with Mike Papantonio

23. Al's show is the highlight of my day.

I like Papantonio, but I could not listen to him for an hour.
