Legend Harry Belafonte To Be Honored "2016 Champion Of The Year Award"

The legendary Harry Belafonte to receive the Trayvon Martin Foundation"2016 Champion of the Year Award" 

Always outspoken, Belafonte found inspiration for his activism from such figures as singer Paul Robeson; writer and activist W. E. B. Du Bois; and civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. In the 1950s, Belafonte met civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. The pair became good friends, and Belafonte emerged as a strong voice for the civil rights movement. Belafonte was with King when the civil rights leader gave his famous "I Have A Dream" speech in Washington, D.C., and visited with him days before King was assassinated in 1968.

Harry Belafonte is a part of history that changed the world.
