He’s an actor, director, humanitarian, ground-breaker….Sidney Poitier is all that—and much, much more. Mr. Poitier is 87 years young today.

He is a true icon of African-Americans in the cinema, the first to win an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1963 for Lilies of the Field.

I have seen almost all his films, and no matter what their quality, he always gave a dynamic performance.

Birthday greetings to you today, Mr. Poitier! We wish you many, many more!
