Sidney Poitier

Happy Birthday to

Sidney Poitier

84 today

Trailblazing and distinctive Poitier did more for racial equality than any other actor in Hollywood although it took until 1965 (two years after his historic Oscar win) for The Bedford Incident and a role which didn't mention the colour of his skin. Hasn't worked for some time.
