The Cook Political Report's Amy Walter discusses why President Biden's popular policies haven't translated to popularity among voters.
Harry Belafonte became a singing sensation in the 1950s, bringing Caribbean Calypso music to international audiences. The refrain of “Day-O!,” from his recording of “The Banana Boat Song,” echoed for generations.
He went on to have a long career in both singing and acting, dabbling across musical genres and starring on stage and in film.
Belafonte was also an early supporter of the Civil Rights Movement and a confidante of Martin Luther King, Jr. Throughout a career that included Grammy awards, an Emmy, and a Tony, he used his platform to advocate for humanitarian causes and political issues he supported.
In 2003, Harry Belafonte joined Diane in the studio in Washington DC as a guest on The Diane Rehm Show. The issues they talked about then — voting rights, the war in Afghanistan, the privatization of the prison system — almost seem like they could be pulled from the headlines today.
