A Conversation with Harry Belafonte

Sponsored by: Christian Community Action

“A Conversation with Harry Belafonte” will present a wide-ranging discussion on local and global issues. All proceeds from this special evening will benefit Christian Community Action and its programs for families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness and others struggling with the challenges of poverty.

Having spent decades on the frontlines of social justice struggles all over the world, from the Civil Rights Movement in the United States to anti-apartheid efforts in Africa, Harry Belafonte possesses unparalleled experience in this arena. Whether drawing on his friendship with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, or his role as celebrity ambassador for juvenile justice issues with the American Civil Liberties Union, Belafonte provides audiences a vital perspective on some of the most pressing issues of our time—from the Black Lives Matter movement and equal rights struggles to U.S. foreign policy and humanitarianism in Africa.

Belafonte also takes audiences behind the scenes of his legendary career in both music and film, which has earned him three Grammy Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Recording Academy, an Emmy Award, and a Tony Award. 

CCA, a nonprofit organization celebrating its 50th anniversary, is dedicated to providing help, housing, and hope to families and individuals struggling with the challenges of poverty in New Haven. Programs include emergency shelter, food pantry, and a variety of support services for families that are homeless or at risk of homelessness, including case management, job search assistance programs, and educational workshops
