Harry Belafonte

The iconic singer and actor is a noted political activist and has even slammed other celebs for not using their fame enough to draw attention, and money, to important issues. Belafonte, who has protested everything from apartheid to the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida, even wrote an album of protest songs.
