Sing Your Song

Friday, January 13 - Thursday, February 2, 2012

Told with visual style and musical panache, this intimate, inspiring portrait surveys the life and times of singer, actor and activist Harry Belafonte. From his rise to fame in a segregated era, to his provocative crossover into Hollywood, Belafonte’s groundbreaking career personifies the civil rights movement. Off-screen, he has been equally tireless—collaborating with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., mobilizing for social justice and fighting against apartheid, gang violence and the incarceration of youth. Through it all, an indomitable sense of optimism has motivated him, as even today he asks, “What do we do next?”
