In the 1980s, Harry Belafonte led an effort to help people in Africa. He came up the idea of recording a song with other celebrities, which would be sold to raise funds to provide famine relief in Ethiopia. Written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie, "We Are the World" featured vocals by such music greats as Ray Charles, Diana Ross, Bruce Springsteen and Smokey Robinson. The song was released in 1985, raising millions of dollars and becoming an international hit.

Tapping into Martin Luther King Jr I never knew Harry Belafonte played such a great role. Excellent interview
Actor Harry Belafonte, seen here leaning against a statue of the Academy Award in March 1956, has said many times “I’m an activist who also became an actor,” and his acceptance speech reflected that statement. As the Hollywood Reporter and other outlets reported, Mr. Belafonte’s speech pointed out past Hollywood failures like the effect of D.W. Griffith’s 1915 film The Birth of a Nation, McCarthyism and the blacklist as well as “today’s cultural harvest yields a sweeter fruit,” a reference to films like Schindler’s List, Brokeback Mountain and 12 Years a Slave. Mr. Belafonte also invited Sidney Poitier to the stage to share the moment with him. He called Mr. Poitier, “a man who gave so much of his own life to redirect the ship of racial hatred in American culture.”
Midway through the Civil Rights movement, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. realized that the struggle for integration would ultimately become a struggle for economic rights. I remember the last time we were together, at my home, shortly before he was murdered. He seemed quite agitated and preoccupied, and I asked him what the problem was. "I've come upon something that disturbs me deeply," he said. "We have fought hard and long for integration, as I believe we should have, and I know that we will win. But I've come to believe we're integrating into a burning house." Harry Belafonte

A very moving service here in my retirement community to mark MLK Day. The reading of the narrative of King's life, interspersed with readings from his speeches and Gospel hymns. Many thanks to Chaplain Julianne Buenting, Rev. D. Maria Neighbors, and reader and pianist Edward Simunye. Watching a 1970 documentary film now, "King: A Filmed Record... Montgomery to Memphis," narrated by Sidney Poitier, James Earl Jones, Harry Belafonte, Ruby Dee, and other Hollywood actors. Seeing and hearing these primary sources is a moving experience, and reveals that, unfortunately, too much of what we hear about King is superficial. For example, an email from ELCA arrived today saying that God is calling us to "make a difference, like M.L.King and Jesus." Really? That easy? And how much support would we get? Of course, the email is correct at one level, and I respect that, but I'm offended at the breezy manner in which a denominational agency sloganizes the reality of Jesus and King.
