A bit late, but I wanted to tell you anyway. The new book of Oprah’s book club is called : “The measure of a man: A spiritual autobiography” by Sidney Poitier. It is a bibliography of this American author. In this book he describes his (hard) life.
Poitier was born in 1927 in Miami, but he was raised in the Bahamas. He got into acting after the war and made his debut in “No way out”. He was the first black actor to win a Oscar for best Actor. He starred in over fourty fims. He directed nine films and wrote four of them. Until now he won three Oscars, an American Film Institute Lifetime Achievement Award and the Kennedy Center Lifetime Achievement and the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award.
