Sir Sidney Poitier changed the tapestry of entertainment, adding color, both literally and figuratively, in a positive light by portraying Black characters who were intelligent, articulate, and just decent human beings in a time when extreme bigotry and inequality plagued our country, especially in the South. His accomplishments in cinema opened doors to aspiring African-American actors and entertainers, and his contribution to the same can't be overestimated. Few people have such a legacy, and the world is the better for Mr. Portier's contributions to the arts. RIP, Good Sir.
