Super Sidney’s “Lost” movie

The late 1960’s were a hell of time. It looked like the country was ripping apart at the seams. There was the Vietnam war going on full blast (even worse because of the Viet Cong Tet offensive the year before, which the U.S. military was totally unprepared for), the Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy assassinations, urban riots torching major cities, college student protests, and those long-haired smelly hippies with their ”free love” and drugs.

And then there was the whole Black Power, Black is beautiful, afro-wearing, Black Panthers, Tommie Smith and John Carlos giving the Black Power raised fist salute on the awards podium at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, movement. Black people were angry. And you think this country is divided now? You kids don’t have any idea. It’s Always been divided!

And in Hollywood, one person who was affected by this change was Sidney Poitier »
