Rev. Sharpton began in ministry at an age when most children were playing in sandboxes. He preached his first sermon at the post toddler age of four entitled "Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled".  In 1969 at age fourteen, Rev. Jesse Jackson named him Youth Director of Operation Breadbasket's New York City office. Two years later in 1971, he founded the National Youth Movement. In 1991 Rev. Sharpton founded a civil rights organization called the National Action Network.
