Please Join Us for "Sing Your Song"
The Diversity Council and the Reading Center are pleased to present "Sing Your Song," a film about the life and civil rights work of Harry Belafonte. This documentary was chosen as the opening film at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
Known as the King of Calypso, Belafonte was a superstar in the 60's, yet he faced the same Jim Crow laws as every other African American man of the times. In addition to being among the first to integrate Hollywood, Belafonte became a leader in the Civil Rights Movement and continues to work for social justice even today.
The FREE screening will be followed by refreshments and discussion. Register.
Sponsored by the Jim & Judy Sloan Foundation, Rochester Area Foundation, and Rochester Public Schools.
