Harry Belafonte: 'Faced with oppression, I had to act' (Watch)

When Harry Belafonte speaks, we listen.

With his documentary Sing Your Song in UK theaters currently, the 85-year-old actor/singer/activist talks to Sarfraz Manzoor of The Guardian about his life and work in film, music and fighting for social equality – as chronicled in a new memoir. He also discusses his friendship with Martin Luther King, his relationship with President John F Kennedy, and the humiliation that led him to become more heavily involved in the fight against racial segregation.

Worth watching and listening to (h/t Afro-Europe):
