2 - 4 weeks availability


Written in the form of extended letters to his new great-granddaughter, Life Beyond Measure offers perspective and wisdom gained from Sidney Potier's own remarkable life -- growing up in the Bahamas, breaking the race barrier in theatre and film during the Civil Rights era, and achieving stardom and success not only in Hollywood but also as a diplomat and humanitarian. In his role as a father, grandfather and great-grandfather, he shares personal stories for those important passages through life: first day at school as well as graduation, learning right from wrong, first job and career choices, falling in love and surviving a break-up, wedding day and commitment in marriage, first child and parenthood, maturity and loss, and what kind of legacy will stand the test of time. No EU Toy Safety hazard warning applicable.
