Harry Belafonte discusses his extraordinary life as a celebrated singer and activist to celebrate the publication of his life story, 'My Song'.
Belafonte acted as a conduit between Martin Luther King and the Kennedys and his involvement in the Civil Rights movement is perhaps the greatest triumph of his extraordinary life. He was in the US Navy during World War II, had a celebrated stage career and enjoyed friendships with Marlon Brando, Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton, among others.
'This rich memoir chronicles a life of activism alongside some of history's greatest heroes and sheds new light on moments that shaped our nation.' President William Jefferson Clinton
