Harry Belafonte is a legendary and multitalented artist and activist. He was the first black performer to win an Emmy Award and the first recording artist to sell over a million copies of a single album with Calypso (1956) featuring his hit “Day-O.”
Having spent decades on the frontlines of social justice struggles all over the world, from the Civil Rights Movement in the United States to anti-apartheid efforts in Africa, Harry Belafonte possesses unparalleled experience in this arena. Whether drawing on his friendship with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, or his role as celebrity ambassador for juvenile justice issues with the American Civil Liberties Union, Belafonte provides audiences a vital perspective on some of the most pressing issues of our time—from the Black Lives Matter movement and equal rights struggles to U.S. foreign policy and humanitarianism in Africa.
