We need Mr. Belafonte now more than ever.
26 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is my first review of a film. I am a very avid film watcher never going a single day without watching at least one movie. I hope this lays an outline of my intense admiration for this film and Harry Belafonte. I was very surprised to not find this on any lists of amazing documentaries. The source material alone should garner a 7.5 rating let alone the fact we have the information given from the subjects own account. You ask anyone today white & younger than 30 who Harry Belafonte is and 9 times out of 10 you will get a look of confusion. This is almost devastatingly upsetting. I can't lie and say that I was not one of those people. Like most of my generation the knowledge of Harry stopped at Day-O or Beetlejuice. The influence this man had on our culture along with politicians and civil rights leaders should be public knowledge but I don't see this to be true. This documentary is important. The beautiful music may run in 2nd place in this film but it is rightly so. Harry who influenced people such as John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, and Martin Luther king should be known for his unmatched kindness and insanely brave contributions to mankind. When I watch something that inspires me I become interested. When I watch something that reroutes the pathways in my brain I become obsessed. This film has done that. So, stop reading what someone as minuscule as me has to say and run to Amazon or Vudu and WATCH THIS FILM.
