Harry Belafonte, the featured guest at Legal Aid’s Centennial Celebration on September 24, is as well known for his activism and pursuit of social justice as he is for his acting and musical talent. His album “Calypso” made him the first artist in history to sell more than a million LPs. He won a Tony award for his Broadway debut in “John Murray Anderson Almanac” and an Emmy for “An Evening with Belafonte,” in which he was also the first black producer in television. He was also awarded the National Medal for the Arts by President Bill Clinton.
The Centennial Celebration is at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Also featured is internationally renowned artist Josee Nadeau, who will be painting live on stage during the event.
