"Rev. Sharpton [met] with Senator Bernie Sanders at Sylvia’s restaurant in Harlem," the statement said.
Sanders and Sharpton spoke on various topics of importance to the African American community, including police brutality and misconduct as well as the ongoing water crisis in the US state of Michigan, according to local media.
On Tuesday night, Sanders defeated his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton by more than 20 points. Clinton is known for her close ties to many African American communities that have backed her in previous elections.
