CNN - Sidney Poitier, Hollywood's first Black movie star and the first Black man to win the best actor Oscar, has just passed away at the age of 94. Clint Watson, press secretary for the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, confirmed to CNN that Poitier died just this past Thursday. In Poitier's later years, as Hollywood sought to recognize a man whose example had opened doors for so many other Black actors, the accolades poured in. In 2001, Poitier even went onto receiving an honorary Academy Award for his overall contribution to American cinema. The following year, in accepting his best actor Oscar for "Training Day," Denzel Washington said, "Forty years I've been chasing Sidney...I'll always be chasing you, Sidney. I'll always be following in your footsteps." Sidney Poitier will surely be missed by many.
