Appreciation
15 April 2012 | by do-byeSee all my reviews

I am in my early 30's. My parents and grandparents were around for the Jim crow and civil rights movement. This is a another documentary that I enjoyed watching. Harry Belafonte is more than just an icon, he is an example that all humans of all races can follow. He is an outstanding actor, but that is just a piece of what is really behind the man himself. He really stood in the face of racism, injustice, and poverty because he wanted a better life for himself and the people of this world. The life of family was always important to him and came first no matter the cause. Mr. Belafonte reminds me of my father in a sense. My father is no activist, but I respect him deeply for his views and opinions. I am not that or a pioneer, but I feel I can speak on things when needed. To Harry Belafonte, thank you for being a voice yesterday, today, and tomorrow!!!
