January 14, 2020
Sidney Poitier and Oprah Winfrey are inspirational people in different ways. And it's a beautiful thing to learn that they both inspire each other.
While receiving the Cecil B. de Mille Award at Golden Globes for her lifetime achievements, Oprah Winfrey revealed that actor Sidney Poitier shaped her mind when she was only 10 years old.
The year was 1964 and Anne Bancroft had just announced the winner for the best actor at the Oscars as Sidney Poitier. It was fascinating for Oprah to see a black man being celebrated this way and it was a moment that was marked forever in her life.
Watching Sidney's win inspired Oprah in a massive way and gave her the incredible idea that anything is possible regardless of the color of her skin.
