    Story
    (26)

    Belafonte grew up, poverty-ridden, in Harlem and Jamaica. His mother was a complex woman - caring but withdrawn, eternally angry and rarely satisfied. His father was distant and physically abusive. It was not an easy life, but it instilled in young Harry the hard-nosed toughness of the city and the resilient spirit of the Caribbean lifestyle. It also gave him the drive to make good and channel his anger into actions that were positive and life-affirming. His journey led to the U.S. Navy during World War II, where he encountered an onslaught of racism but also fell in love with the woman he eventually married.

    Story
    Would you listen to My Song again? Why?

    Absolutely. The richness of the experiences shared by Harry Belefonte is beyond measure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The look at American History from the perspective of someone who faced oppression and racism head on, and who learned that moving forward with peace is really the answer to saving tomorrow.


    What does Harry Belafonte and Mirron Willis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hearing the story told with the passion they both used helped bring it to life in a way the words on a page could have not have done.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the time to listen!
