Last night MSNBC president Phil Griffin was honored by Rev. Al Sharpton‘s National Action Network. Griffin accepted the “Keepers of the Dream” award from NAN. The award is meant to “honor those who have continued to advocate for the principles for which Dr. King gave his life.”

Griffin was presented the award by Sharpton, EVP of Reverend Al Sharpton Media Rachel Noerdlinger, and NBC News political analyst Harold Ford Jr. (pictured above)
