A Conversation with Harry Belafonte
All proceeds from this fundraising event will support CCA programs for families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness in New Haven.
This special event will feature a wide-ranging discussion on local and global issues. Having spent decades on the frontlines of social justice struggles all over the world – from the Civil Rights Movement in the United States to anti-apartheid efforts in Africa – Mr. Belafonte possesses unparalleled experience in this arena. Daphne Brooks, Yale Professor of African-American Studies and Theater Studies, will moderate.
Whether drawing on his friendship with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, or his role as an ambassador for the American Civil Liberties Union, Mr. Belafonte will provide a vital perspective on some of the most pressing issues of our time – from the Black Lives Matter movement and equal rights struggles to U.S. foreign policy and humanitarianism in Africa. Mr. Belafonte will also take audiences behind the scenes of his legendary career in both music and film, which has earned him three Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, and a Tony Award.
