Printable Black History Coloring Sheets - Sidney Poitier
Sir Sidney Poitier, (born February 20, 1927) is an Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Grammy award-winning Bahamian-American actor, film director, author, and diplomat. He broke through as a star in acclaimed performances in American films and plays, which, by consciously defying racial stereotyping, gave a new dramatic credibility for black actors to mainstream film audiences in the Western world.
In 1963, Poitier became the first black man to win the Academy Award for Best Actor - for his role in Lilies of the Field. The significance of this achievement was later bolstered in 1967 when he starred in three very well received films - To Sir, With Love; In the Heat of the Night; and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - making him the top box office star of that year.
