Harry Belafonte

Harry Belafonte is familiar to many of us as a singer and actor but it was his activism that defined his life.

From introducing artists  such as Miriam Makeba and Nana Mouskouri to American audiences, to being part of civil rights marches and movements, Harry Belafonte used theatre, music and art to draw attention to injustice and to encourage change. Along the way he gave us songs like the Banana Boat Song and Turn the World Around. 

Thank you, Harry, for living such an amazing life for us all.
