Sidney Poitier Dies: Trailblazing Actor, Civil Rights Activist Was 94

From the article by Greg Evans,

Sidney Poitier, the trailblazing and iconic Black actor, director, civil rights activist and humanitarian, has died, the Bahamian Minister of Foreign Affairs announced Friday.

Details of his death were not immediately available.

Another very sad loss after yesterday’s story about Peter Bogdanovich. The influence of Sidney Poitier on filmmaking and humanity really can’t be understated. At 94, he had a full and truly remarkable life. We were all better because he was a force in this world.

2022, if you’re listening, please knock it off with this stuff. It’s barely January.
