RIP Sydney Poitier

Not how anyone wanted to start 2022 off. The first black man to win an Oscar, the first to portray an interracial relationship on screen with Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner. A groundbreaking film since it was made before interracial marriages were legal in 1969. Black men are not a monolith, or the stereotypes you created and perpetuate with systemic racism. Thank you for being talented, handsome, stylish, and legendary. We will miss you. You elevated the culture, Wakanda Forever. What’s your favorite Sydney Poitier film?
