Rest In Peace, Harry Belafonte

Nobody had a bigger musical influence on my childhood than Harry Belafonte. What’s more, his activism was a part of my understanding of the world around me. Not to mention, my mom had a crush on him that lasted decades.

Not sure who he was? Chances are you’ll recognize this iconic song. But look up some others–“Man Smart, Woman Smarter” or “Jamaica Farewell.”

Rest in peace. Your influence lives on.
