    An actor, humanitarian, and the acknowledged king of calypso, Harry Belafonte ranks among the most important performers of the postwar era. This special speaking event features one of the most successful African-American pop stars in history. Belafonte’s staggering talent and masterful assimilation of folk, jazz, and world beat rhythms allowed him to achieve a level of mainstream eminence and crossover popularity virtually unparalleled in mid-century America.

    Belafonte has been a vocal leader in human rights movements, most notably with the Civil Rights movement in America, and as initiator of the We Are the World African aid project in the mid-1980s. His close friend, Dr. Martin Luther King, said of Belafonte: “His commitment to our cause is a key ingredient to the global struggle for freedom…We are blessed by his courage and moral integrity.”
