UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador
March 1, 1927 – April 25, 2023
"We mourn the loss of Harry Belafonte, one of the world’s greatest actors, singers, producers, and champions of human rights – especially for children.
“He served as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for 36 years, where his dedication and generosity of spirit helped set a high standard for the role – meeting with world leaders to champion the cause of UNICEF and secure support for the issues that impact children’s lives. His legacy includes advocating for primary health care, treatment for HIV/AIDS, and free access to education for all.
“He was an eloquent campaigner for the world’s children and understood the power of maintaining the world’s attention on its most needy, including, among other things, giving the iconic UNICEF ‘School-in-a-Box’ its name, and organizing the Grammy winning and quadruple platinum single We are the World to raise money for African famine relief.
“We extend our deepest sympathies to the Belafonte family, and join his many fans, friends and admirers from across the globe in celebrating his life, his work, and his steadfast commitment to children.”

Belafonte considered the actor, singer, and
activist Paul Robeson a mentor, and he
was a close confidant of
Martin Luther King Jr. during the
Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
As he later recalled, "Paul Robeson had been my first great formative influence; you might say
he gave me my backbone. Martin King was
the second; he nourished my soul."
