Harry Belafonte (canol) rhwng Sidney Poitier a Charlton Heston, Gorymdaith Hawliau Sifil i Washington, 1963.

Cerddor, actor ac ymgyrchydd Americanaidd Jamacaidd yw Harold George Belafonte, Jr. (ganed 1 Mawrth, 1927, yn Ninas Efrog Newydd), sy'n adnabyddus fel Harry Belafonte. Mae'n un o'r cantorion mwyaf poblogaidd erioed, a lysenwyd yn "Frenin Calypso," am iddo boblogeiddio'r arddull cerddorol Caribïaidd hwnnw yn rhyngwladol yn y 1950au. Mae caneuon mwyaf adnabyddus Harry Belafonte yn cynnwys y "Banana Boat Song", gyda'i chytgan enwog "Day-O," ac "Island in the Sun". Trwy gydol ei yrfa, mae Belafonte wedi bod yn ymgyrchydd amlwg dros hawliau sifil ac achosion dyngarol. Cymerodd ran yn ymgyrchoedd y Mudiad Hawliau Sifil yn yr Unol Daleithiau (UDA) i ennill hawliau sifil llawn i bobl duon y wlad ac mae wedi beirniadau polisi tramor UDA ers blynyddoedd. Yn fwy diweddar, bu'n feirniad amlwg o bolisïau gweinyddiaeth Bush, yn enwedig Rhyfel Irac. Un o'r dylanwadau mwyaf arno, yn gerddorol ac yn wleidyddol, yw'r canwr Paul Robeson.
