Harry Belafonte

Harry Belafonte is an International Treasure, speaking out against racism in-justice and for non-violence as a tool of engagement from the U.S. to South Africa and South America. He was in Oakland, for the 1st Annual National Gathering for Justice an event inspired by the 5 year little girl who was arrested by 5 police officers for misbehavior in class and designed to keep our youth out of jail and out of trouble by providing ideas, opportunities and organizational solutions, city and countrywide! an event that was attended by Walter Mosley, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Mike Farrell, congresswoman Barbara Lee and many others
He spoke to mostly young organizers giving an inspiring speech on how the youth and the artist can truly change things.
