E.R. Braithwaite, real-life inspiration for To Sir With Love, Dies at 104

Recommended Posts

If you've ever seen this movie, which starred Sidney Poitier, the story of, E.R. Braithwaite, you know it's the story of the first Black teacher in all of London (I believe he was the first). Mr. Braithwaite, a West Indian immigrant from what was then known as British Guyana was portrayed by Bahamian born actor Sidney Poitier.

Mr. Braithwaite has died at the age of 104.



I've watched that film so many times!
