Harry Belafonte was not just a good-looking singer but spent his life fighting for human rights and justice. This film tells the compelling story about his life and activism. Enjoy this one-off screening and support UnionAID projects at the same time.
"He has won Grammy, Tony and Emmy Awards but has walked away from lucrative gigs that would have compromised his stance against racism. An ardent foe of injustice wherever he finds it and an advocate of welding his art and celebrityhood as weapons against oppression, Belafonte was harassed by everyone from FBI to Vegas mafia bosses. Threats only seem to stiffen his resolve." (Film website)
Only one screening with all profits going to UnionAID projects.
