Presenting 20 Sidney Poitier Movie Posters...

A collection of posters from the films of actor, filmmaker and director Sidney Poitier. According to the All Movie Guide, Poitier broke the color barrier, forever altering the racial perceptions long held by both motion picture audiences and executives, rising to superstar status in an industry forever dominated on both sides of the camera by whites while becoming the first black Academy Award winner for Best Actor in 1964, receiving the honor for his performance in Lilies of the Field (1963).
