I showed movies on the weekends and cleaned campus buildings while a student. one Friday there were 4 reels and were not in order. I showed #1, #2, #4 and realized I missed #3. no one complained, so I ran #3. I think the movie was "To sir with love". Mr. Sidney Poitier made ground breaking progress enabling many African Americans to have a chance to be in movies.

You're right about Sidney Pointer, he was a kind of bridge builder for the African people. This Rose is so beautiful with it's lovely colour, Richard.

beautiful tribute, Richard, and yes, he broke barriers and was a brave soul. He's one of a number of great talents who left us in the last year. Your photo is luscious, esp full size. Great closeup, and mouth-watering hues. It's like the rose posed for you. Beautifully done.
