Series: Sidney Poitier: The Measure of a Man

As an actor, director, activist and cultural force, Sidney Poitier has occupied a unique position in film history. As the first black male movie star he bore a special burden, which he carried with both grace and a sense of its gravity. We will be joined at select screenings by series programmer Mark D. Cunningham, associate professor at Austin Community College, for discussions about Poitier and his work.
