The Rev. Al Sharpton and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shared breakfast tea at a Harlem landmark a day after the Democrat's New Hampshire victory.

During their meeting Wednesday at Sylvia's restaurant, they discussed issues that affect the African-American community around the country.

Sharpton says they talked about affirmative action, police brutality and the water disaster in Flint, Michigan.

Sharpton adds that he and various heads of national civil rights organizations plan to meet with Hillary Clinton next week.

He says he won't endorse a candidate until after that meeting with Clinton.

The civil rights activist was joined by two prominent African-Americans — former NAACP head Ben Jealous and New York state Sen. Bill Perkins. Both of them have endorsed Sanders.
