SIDNEY POITIER INSCRIBES HIS MEMOIR TO JUSTICE GINSBURG.POITIER, SYDNEY. The Measure of a Man. New York: Harper Collins, 2000. Hardcover with jacket. First edition. Inscribed by Poitier: "To Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may the most you wish for be the least you receive from a long, happy and useful life. Sidney Poitier." Poitier, like Ginsburg, is known for breaking barriers. His emergence on the theater and film scene in the late 1950s showcased his formidable talent, but the provocative roles he took on in Raisin in the Sun (on Broadway and on film), In the Heat of the Night, and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? directly confronted issues of racial prejudice, changing the way those issues were address in film and drama. In addition to being the first African-American actor to earn an Academy Award for Best Actor, for Lilies of the Field (1963), he also was recognized with an Honorary Academy Award in 2001, a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute, the Cecil B. DeMille Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a BAFTA Fellowship, was made a Knight Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth in 1974, and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama in 2011.
