Rev. Sharpton to Speak in South Carolina

The Rev. Al Sharpton plans to be in North Charleston this weekend to preach at a church in the aftermath of the fatal shooting of a Black man by a White officer after a traffic stop. Sharpton told The Associated Press on Friday that his message to the congregation of the Charity Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday will be that people pursue justice "in a peaceful, legal way."

Anthony Scott, the brother of victim Walter L. Scott, tells The Associated Press, that a representative of Sharpton's National Action Network has been working with family since the shooting last weekend.
