Subject: RE: Obit: The most marvelous Sidney Poiter
I just read the ABC News article here in Oz.
I always enjoyed his films.
In fact, on reflection, having seen him in To Sir With Love when I was in first year of high school and not worldly-wise I probably took it for granted that black people were highly respected and then became bitterly disappointed over the years when I didn't see that respect continue in movies and in real life.
Rest in peace, Sir.
