RIP Mr Poitier.
God needed another actor for his theater group. R. I. P good sir.
I did not always agree with his politics, but he had a good heart and was a great actor.
Amen brother, amen.
You will be remembered. You will be missed. RIP
Time to watch, Lillies of the Field , my favorite Poitier movie.
Thanks for the quote, Mr Benson. What an excellent man.
A great tribute Mr Benson.
That is beautiful and how we should all strive to be. Not just for ourselves, but for our families, friends, and neighbors.
There are no better human beings than those that strive to better themselves, And get it done to perfection, Rest In Peace Mr. Poitier
One of my favorites. I do get upset with “He was the first black actor…” crap. That’s like saying “The blue-eyed actor, Paul Newman…” or “The bald actor, Yul Brynner…” He was an Actor. He won an Academy Award.
Steve, thank you for immortalizing Mr. Poitier, he was a treasure ♥
Rest In Peace Sir.
For those of you who, like me, were wondering what medal that is, it is the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
We seem to be losing great people at an increased rate recently, and he was definitely one of the greats. RIP
Great tribute, Steve!
He made his film debut in the classic film THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE.
And I remember him from an indie called VIRGIN ISLANDS.
A great actor.
We are losing those who inspired us and taught us to be better.
Rest in peace Sidney"Mr. Tibbs"Poitier. To you SIR with LOVE. Rest in peace.
Excellent Steve ! Poitier, what a great actor and human being.
