Sally Belfrage (October 4, 1936—March 14, 1994) was an United States-born British-based 20th century non-fiction writer and international journalist. Her writing covered turmoils in Northern Ireland, the American Civil Rights movement and her own memoirs about her life.
Her books include The Crack: A Belfast Year (retitled Living with War: A Belfast Year for United States distribution), Un-American Activities: A Memoir of the Fifties, Freedom Summer, and A Room in Moscow. She spent a month studying under the spiritual leader Osho to gather material for "Flowers of Emptiness: Reflections on an Ashram" (1981).
Born in Hollywood, California, Belfrage became a social activist and world traveller. In the 1950s, both of her parents, Cedric Belfrage and Molly Castle, were deported from the United States as alleged Communists.
In 1965, she married Bernard Pomerance. They would have two children. In 1969, Belfrage signed a war tax resistance vow, along with 447 other American writers and editors. It was published in the January 30, 1969 edition of the New York Post.
