Sidney Poitier's introspective life story gives honor to his parents' profound, yet simple upbringing, that gave him the tools to "measure" manhood. Reviewing his Bahamian childhood, learning from nature, reading body language, and developing a strong self-worth, Mr. Poitier explains how the values learned while young sustained him during the disturbing introduction to racism in America.
A most important read for parents, especially of African American boys. Learn from Sidney Poiter's parents how to give your boy those same enduring values of life. The book covers his entire life from Bahama to Miami to Hollywood with a very introspective and spiritual eye.
