Harry Belafonte was born in poverty in Harlem. He died this year. After his death his family started the Belafonte Foundation to support the many causes he worked for during his life, and donations may be made to that Foundation.
When he was young, Harry was sent to Jamaica to live with family there so he could have a better life. He returned to Harlem in his teens, and thereafter he became a musician and an actor who won many accolades and awards all over the world during his lifetime. The movie showcases many of those magical performances. The movie also provides details on the many causes he supported during his life, and how he participated in supporting them. The last cause he worked for before his death was an end to gang violence. He worked for equal justice and freedom with great humility, and brought with him to his public appearances many other famous performers from the entertainment industry to stand with him.
He never seemed loud or angry. He was very effective. He counted as friends both Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela Through his peaceful efforts, he strove to make the world a better place for all of us.
