Fiction Becomes Life: Sidney Poitier Predicted Obama's Election

In this scene from the great classic film "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" (I love Katharine Hepburn!), Sidney Poitier discusses the prospect of his biracial children someday becoming President or at least Secretary of State. Forty years ago. I'm sure it was a radical notion in 1967 to voice this in a film. E-mail subscribers will need to go directly to the blog to view the video.
