I was wearing blue jeans and maroon fleece when I selected my earrings this morning. This pair was a gift from my mother-in-law a few years ago, purchased from a Fair Trade catalog, chosen for me who shares her love of blues.
As I was pondering a connection for these earrings, an ad came on TV for the film Sing Your Song, a new documentary that chronicles Harry Belafonte's activism. The title of the movie comes from the words that Paul Robeson spoke to Belafonte backstage at a concert.
Belafonte traveled the world, meeting with world leaders and working for peace and justice... in Ethiopia, Alabama, Haiti, South Africa. He got a lot of people all over the world to sing his songs.
