Harold George Belafonte, Jr.(b. 1927), the son of Jamaican immigrants, studied at the Actors Studio, the drama workshop at the New York School for Social Research and the American Negro Theater. After appearing on the New York stage and singing in cabarets, he made his film debut in Bright Road (1953). The following year, Belafonte won a Tony Award for John Murray Anderson's Almanac and starred in Carmen Jones, the second film in his string of hits. In 1956, he spearheaded the Calypso music craze with his album Calypso. The album was number one on the charts for an amazing 31 weeks. His most popular single was the well-known "Banana Boat Song." Belafonte, who also became television's first Black producer, won Emmy Awards in 1960 for his TV special, Tonight With Harry Belafonte, and in 1985 for initiating the all-star We Are the World video. Belafonte, always politically active, has been outspoken in his criticism of the war in Iraq and other US foreign policy ventures. Edges lightly frayed. Fine condition.
