Born in Harlem, New York in 1927, Harry Belafonte grew up amid poverty and racial discrimination; by the mid 1960s he was one of the biggest black stars in the world, and he was using his fame to support and raise funds to fight segregation. In this thoughtful autobiography he explores the roots of his anger and describes the rise of the civil rights movement from his perspective as a close friend of Martin Luther King and a lifelong, passionate activist. Slightly off-mint. American-cut pages and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
