About Keynote Speaker Harry Belafonte

Award-winning Harry Belafonte is as well known for his social activism and pursuit of social justice as he is for being actor and musical talent. His album Calypso made him the first artist in history to sell more than one million LPs. He won a Tony award for his Broadway debut in “John Murray Anderson Almanac” and an Emmy for “An Evening with Belafonte,” in which he was also the first african american producer in television. He was also awarded the National Medal for the Arts by President Clinton.

He has been equally recognized in the social justice arena, with honors such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Prize, The Albert Einstein Award from Yeshiva University, and the Nelson Mandela Courage Award, as well as awards from the American Jewish Congress, the NAACP, The Urban League, The National Conference of Black Mayors, the City of Hope, Fight for Sight, Hadassah International, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, the ACLU, the State Department, the Boy Scouts of America, and the Peace Corps.

Over the past decades, Mr. Belafonte has worked with President John F. Kennedy,  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela, and was the leading force behind the 1985 “We Are the World” project to help people affected by war, drought, and food shortages in Africa. He has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and is a recipient of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors for excellence in the performing arts.
