    I did not always agree with his politics, but he had a good heart and was a great actor.

    That is beautiful and how we should all strive to be. Not just for ourselves, but for our families, friends, and neighbors.

    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.

    For those of you who, like me, were wondering what medal that is, it is the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    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.
