Amplifying Social Activism via Social Media

Harry Belafonte addressed the NY Justice League Gala last night.  He’s the king of calypso, an actor and a social activist. I was lucky enough to hear his speech and take this screenshot to share it with you all. Social media and technology are changing the level of access to key events.  As physical barriers dissipate the opportunity arises to amplify the volume of such speeches, increasing awareness of important issues and causes.

Today I thank Ebro Darden for opening that window via Periscope check out my twitter for the link to watch it back, you have 24 hours from the time of the original broadcast to view and share it as this is the current time limit that Periscope has set on broadcasts.
