HBO has picked up the U.S. TV rights for the documentary, ‘Sing Your Song,’ which tells the rich story of the life of Harry Belafonte.

Directed by filmmaker Susanne Rostock, the film will debut on Oct. 17, 2011, exclusively on HBO.

Inspired by singer and actor Paul Robeson, Belafonte rose to fame as a singer, despite trying tours across a segregated country and his provocative crossover into mainstream Hollywood. Belafonte’s groundbreaking career personifies the American civil rights movement, while impacting many other developments in social justice.

‘Sing Your Song’ reveals Belafonte as a tenacious hands-on activist, who worked intimately with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., mobilized celebrities for social justice, participated in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa and took action to counter gang violence, prisons and the incarceration of youth.

Belafonte’s well songs include ‘Jump in the Line,’ ‘Jamaica Farewell,’ and the classic ‘Banana Boat Song,’ with its signature lyric “Day-O.”
