ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg had lunch with civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton at a famous soul food restaurant Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem on Monday.
The two chatted while Buttigieg ate his meal.
Sharpton barely touched his toast.
Buttigieg and other Democratic presidential candidates are intensifying their outreach to black voters this year following the first decline in African-American turnout in 20 years during the 2016 election, which helped sink Hillary Clinton and contributed to Trump's stunning upset victory.
The historically diverse 2020 Democratic field includes black, Hispanic and openly gay candidates, as well as a record six women so far.
