In 1963, Sidney Poitier became the first African American to win an Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in Lilies of the Field. When presenting Poitier with his Oscar statuette, the actress Ann Bancroft congratulated him with a kiss on the cheek, a gesture that caused a mild scandal among the show’s most conservative audiences. Poitier accepted his award with grace and said in his speech “…it has been a long journey to this moment.” [x]
