Program Description

Event Details

Sidney Poitier was the first African-American actor to win the Academy Award for Best Actor. His illustrious film career includes Lilies of the Field, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night, and To Sir With Love, to name a few. We will celebrate the life of this dignified gentleman who left his home in the Bahamas at the tender age of 14 and evolved into a cultural icon, a great entertainer, an actor, a film director, an entrepreneur, and a respected human and civil rights activist.
