    To get his first major role in 'No Way Out (1950)' he lied to director John Mankiewicz and told him he was twenty-seven (he was twenty-two).
    His early roles, while compelling, were still less interesting and prominent than those white actors routinely obtained.

    He achieved only moderate success as a director.
    He overcome his poor background and made it big.
    He was the first African American to win the best actor 'Academy Award.'
    His roles in 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967)' and 'To Sir, with Love (1967)' broke racial barriers.
    Awarded the American Film Institute Life Achievement Award (1992).
    Appointed ambassador of the Bahamas to Japan (April 1997)
    He influenced several generations of African American actors.
