This chapter details events in Sidney Poitier's life from 1972–1978. These include the decline of Poitier's career and his attempts to revive it when blaxploitation still reigned; his partnership with Harry Belafonte to produce the film Buck and the Preacher; the staging of Amiri Baraka's play Sidnee Poet Heroical, which caricatures Poitier and attacks his image and humanity; and his writing of the autobiography This Life.
