PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Reverend Al Sharpton promoted his new book at the Free Library of Philadelphia this afternoon, saying it’s about life lessons, with anecdotes.

The book is called The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path to American Leadership.

In his remarks to the audience, Sharpton said, “Whether you are middle class, whether you are poor white, whether you are Latino, whether you are gay, all of us have been rejects. And what we are seeing now is that a lot of society can not adjust to the fact that the rejects now have become the cornerstone of this country.”

Mike from Willow Grove was a member of the crowd that came to hear Sharpton speak, and to buy the Reverend’s first book in ten years.

“He takes care of business, he knows what he is doing,” Mike said. “I’m glad to see he lost a lot of weight.”

Sharpton talks about a number of things in his book, including his ministry, his music business, and civil rights.
