Poitier and Bert Williams, the turn of the century comedian, had a lot in common. Both black. Both grew up in the Bahamas. Both came to America, achieved enormous success, and advanced positive perceptions of American blacks. Though the concept of being a black American was foreign to both.

He was the first Black American to win Best Actor at the Academy Awards.

He was much much more than just a great actor.

He was a true movie star who dominated the screen, a man whose dignity, decency, and integrity was admired by and influenced people of all races, and played a key role in the 1960's civil rights movement.

The train scene with Tony Curtis in The Defiant Ones is one of the best visual metaphors of American society at that time.

Sidney Poitier was to Hollywood what Jackie Robinson was to baseball.


Rest In Peace...MISTER Tibbs.

On a related note, thinking of the late great Mr. Poitier when I came across this rather odd collaboration on Youtube- credit to Soul Asylum for their good taste but theres only one real singer on that stage..and she kills it.

Of course, much more! I didn't realize he, along with his friend, Harry Belafonte, was so active in the civil rights movement.
