Measure of a Man,The
In this luminous memoir, a true American icon looks back on his celebrated life and career. Sidney Poitier was the first African American to win the Academy Award for Best Actor and his body of work is arguably the most morally significant in cinematic history.
Here, in this beautifully written memoir, is Poitier’s own introspective look at what has informed his performances and his life. What emerges is a picture of a man seeking truth, passion and balance in the face of limits – his own and the world’s. A triumph of the spirit, The Measure of Man captures the essential Poitier.
