Al Sharpton’s Charity to Pay Him For Life Story

Al Sharpton‘s own charity, the National Action Network, agreed to pay the activist preacher $531,000 for his “life story rights for a 10-year period,” according to the non-profit’s latest tax filing.

NAN can apparently turn around and sell those rights to Hollywood or other takers at a profit, but neither the reverend nor the charity would identify what producers are waiting for such content. The document also does not indicate when Sharpton, who is president of NAN, gets the cash, which is above and beyond the $244,661 he already pulled down in compensation from the group in 2017.

If NAN paid too much it could run afoul of IRS rules regarding excess benefits given to a nonprofit’s key officials.
