They Call Him Mr. Tibbs
He made history in film. Not only for his groundbreaking portrayal of Detective Virgil Tibbs but also for being the first African American to win the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1964. But his life didn't stop with acting. He also served as an outstanding film director, became an activist, was an ambassador, and was even knighted by Queen Elizabeth herself.
He had an extraordinary and inspiring life. One that continues to inspire today.
"Living consciously involves being genuine; it involves listening and responding to others honestly and openly; it involves being in the moment."
-Sidney Poitier (1927-2022)
