Actor Sidney Poitier Dies Aged 94 Years...

Sidney Poitier, Hollywood's first big Black movie star, has died at the age of 94. 

Poitier's death was confirmed by Eugene Torchon-Newry, acting director general of the Bahamas Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Poitier, who held dual US and Bahamian nationality, was "an icon, a hero, a mentor, a fighter, a national treasure," Deputy Prime Minister Chester Cooper said on his official Facebook page.

He rose to the pinnacle of his profession despite coming from a poor family in the Bahamas and softening his heavy island accent at a time when important opportunities for Black performers were scarce.

He won an Academy Award for "Lilies of the Field" in 1963. "He starred as an itinerant labourer who assists a group of white nuns in the construction of a chapel in the film.
