Harry Belafonte sings his song

HBO's new documentary, "Sing Your Song," takes a closer look at the life of singer and activist Harry Belafonte.  The King of Calypso talks with Brooke about the documentary, the civil rights movement, and his thoughts on why the racism we experience today is "far more subliminal and far more hidden" than it was the past.

    Bigotry and Racism ferment in a dark, secluded and protected space in the American psyche. Until it is brought out in the open it will continue to thrive. When people of same ethnic background start to confront each other on thier own myopia the covert monster that is racism will start to die.
    White people enjoy the luxury of a social landscape that is tilted in thier favor. It would be a challenge of spiritual strength to truly facilliate a level of absolute equal opportunity for all Americans.
