Harry Belafonte: Dr. Martin Luther King ‘helped me grow as a person’

Below is a brief video of Chris Witherspoon of the Grio talking with Harry Belafonte on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  In this 5-minute video, Harry Belafonte reflects on the foreign policy record of the Obama administration - the disappointment and the possibility, as well as his own relationship with and admiration for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I've always appreciated Mr. Belafonte's clear analysis, and his willingness to be openly critical of a person's perspective and track record, but always leaving open the possibility of change and his willingness to engage toward that end.
