        "Sing Your Song" is an illuminating documentary about the life, times and career of Harry Belafonte. Whereas some people like Bill Clinton only think of him as a very talented singer, there is much more to him, like his selfless activism which the movie focuses on that began with an eye-opening visit to the South and his first experiences with Jim Crow laws. So, he went to work to end desegregation in the civil rights movement, plus in his musical acts.(For example, there is a clip of him singing Hava Nagila.) But his experiences do not end there, as he has lately been expressing interest in the high number of minorities in prison in this country. All of which has not been without setbacks, as Belafonte also had to battle network censors in less enlightened days and before cable television but "The Smothers Brothers" having him singing Calypso in front of scenes of police riots just looked like they wanted to get fired at that point.(Although, if you have to go, that's the way to go.) So, whereas it is fair to assume the FBI was watching Belafonte like all other civil rights activists, the evidence the documentary has against one possible informer is spurious to say the least. And your grandparents are right: Tony Bennett is cool.

        Probably one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I love how passionate Harry Belafonte is about his activism in human rights - and he surely continue to inspire us and other entertainers. Really glad I get to know him because of this film, such a courageous human being. So many great quotes that I could get from this film. The most important thing that I get from watching this is we have to stick up to our ideals, no matter how hard the circumstances are. Watched this film from the 55th BFI London Film Festival.
