Harry Belafonte

 

The singer and film actor is just as known for his involvement with civil rights causes. A confidante of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he contributed a great deal to the ‘60s movement, speaking at the March on Washington, bailing leaders out of jail, donating large sums to organizations like SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) and even providing for King’s family after he was assassinated in 1968.
