“He's like the most focused disciplined guy. To imagine being a former president and not having an opinion on anything over the last four years, anything? I mean to have that discipline, to be respectful of the president that hasn't been as respectful of him as he should have been, man I could have never done that. Or to everything he sets his mind to he does, he wants to be good at. And he's actually become a pretty good painter. I'll just admit that this was a surprise to me when I found this out about a year ago. And he's doing it with a vengeance. So if you've got a dog, I'm sure based on your past relationship, he would like to paint it.”
During the anniversary month of the Selma to Montgomery marches, singers and activists Harry Belafonte and Tony Bennett open up to CNN’s Chris Cuomo about their experience and today’s civil rights crisis.
When Belafonte initially asked Bennett to help, Bennett didn’t initially want to do it. “Well, I didn't want to do it but then he told me what went down, what was going down, how some blacks were burned, had gasoline thrown on them and they were burned,” Bennett recalled. “When I heard that I said I'll go with you.”
“Civil rights is a constant. It is never of the past, it's with you all the time,” Belafonte said. “Every society, every millennium, every decade is going to need its vigilant watchers of the democratic process.”
