HARRY 
BELAFONTE

"I grew up in a school system where nobody understood the meaning of a learning disorder. In the West Indies, I was constantly physically abused because the whipping of students was permitted."

Harry Belafonte is a legendary and multitalented Jamaican-American three-time Grammy Award-winning musician, actor and activist artist. He was the first black performer to win an Emmy Award and the first recording artist to sell over a million copies of a single album.
