Harry Belafonte delivers the keynote lecture during the University of Michiganís 28th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium on Monday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. in Hill Auditorium.

Belafonte's roots in the civil rights movement began in the 1950s as he worked alongside his friend Dr. King. As the movement progressed, Belafonte raised funds for King, assisted in voter registration drives, and served as an organizer of the March on Washington in 1963.

Belafonte has continued to champion King's message of racial equality and making a better world by serving as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, helping organize the charity single "We Are the World," and campaigning against HIV/AIDS in Africa.
