RIP Harry Belafonte

My social and political interests are part of my career.  I cannot separate them.  My songs reflect the human condition.  The role of art isn't just to show life as it is, but to show life as it should be.

-- Harry Belafonte (1 March 1927 - 25 April 2023), Jamaican-American singer, songwriter, activist, and actor, "Pass The Torch: Harry Belafonte" at DVRepublic (2005)
