This week's UPFRONT Inside the Entertainment Industry features a salute to Hollywood film icon Sir Sidney Poitier. The Oscar-winning actor, director, activist, and humanitarian passed away on January 6.

Atlanta-based actors Sean Baker and Keith Arthur Bolden open up about his impact on their film and television careers.

Original Dreamgirl Sheryl Lee Ralph takes us down memory lane and chats about working with Mr. Poitier during the 1977 classic film "A Piece of the Action."

Closing out the salute is AAFCA member Edward Adams, who will discuss Mr. Poitier's definitive works including "In the Heat of the Night, "A Raisin in the Sun," "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" and more.
