Here are some tidbits from UPTOWN’s interview with the prolific Al Sharpton.
BLACKBERRY OR IPHONE?
WHAT ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW?
“Up from History: The Life of Booker T. Washington” by Robert J. Norrell.
WHAT IS THE BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD READ?
It’s a new book by Richard Stengel, “Mandela’s Way: Fifteen Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage.”
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE WATCH?
In the early ’90s, Don King and Mike Tyson gave me a Rolex for my birthday, so that’s probably my watch of choice—especially since I didn’t have to pay for it.
DO YOU DRIVE?
No, I’ve never had a driver’s license. When I was down in Augusta for a year, I drove, but no one ever stopped me because I was with James Brown.
