It’s Poitier’s Memoir For Oprah

Oprah has shared that she has chosen Sidney Poitier’s memoir, “The Measure Of A Man”, as her personal choice of a great book. This great book allows readers to take a look inside the actor’s childhood, faith, thoughts, and ideas on the various things that has come through his lifetime.

On this, Oprah says on her show, “He writes really candidly and passionately about his childhood, his family, relationships and his extraordinary career. It (the book) really is about what makes character, what makes you be who you are. He is the measure of one of the greatest men I think who has ever been on our planet.”

And it looks like Poitier has been quite happy with this wherein he shares, “I proudly accept this honor on behalf of the forces that brought it about: the love of my parents, the ever-present kindness of strangers, and the hidden mysteries of the universe and, of course, Oprah Winfrey.”
