I'm in my favorite place in the world (the BYU Library) reading everyones' blogs and noticed that some of you if not all of you (except for Ashley) have no idea who Sidney Poitier is (or was). Well, let me tell you.
It's really not that exciting. He was in a movie with Katherine Hepburn called Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Sidney Poitier's character was gonna marry Katherine Hepburn's daughter, or something like that, and it was pretty controversial 'cause it was gonna be an interracial marriage. The plot of the movie revolves around the family getting ready for their special dinner guest. I guess it was a landmark movie or something. Anyway, that's who Sidney Poitier is.
