Today In B'Days


Like Sidney Poitier, his partner, Harry Belafonte is 81.

Me love Uptown Satuday Night. If you didn't know it before, you know it now. Here is the trailer from the film Harry was in, with Bill Cosby, Flip Wilson, Calvin Lockhart, and Rosalind Cash. LMAO at the announcer; the trailers were so different then--this was before the dude that narrates every single movie trailer was around:





Harry was, and still is, an amazing activist. This is a 3 minute video of his activism from BET, the ending is kinda corny, but it's informative:
