Al Sharpton has to be a proud papa this week with his daughters Ashley and Dominique launching their new talk series The Sharpton Sisters on FOX SOUL.
Each week, Dominique and Ashley Sharpton, daughters of famed civil rights activist, Reverend Al Sharpton, will sit down with another fellow celebrity offspring who understand the mixed blessing of growing up in both the public and social media eye.
“Many don’t understand the lows that come with living under the public eye, especially for women of color. Our show will feature power chats with the children of some of the world’s most influential household names, as they share insight into their lives of being ordinary women with extraordinary legacies to uphold,” said Dominique and Ashley Sharpton, co-hosts of The Sharpton Sisters. “We need more positive Black shows for the younger generation that aren’t centered around fighting, gossip, or negativity. That is why we decided to launch our talk series on a Black positive platform like FOX SOUL. ”
The first episode kicks off with a full introduction to the Sharpton sisters. During this half-hour, Dominique and Ashley sit down with their father to talk about their childhood and what Al really thinks of their new talk show.

The Sharpton Sisters premieres January 18, and airs every Wednesday at 9:00PM (ET) / 6:00PM (PT) exclusively on FOX SOUL.
