RYAN WHITE (1971 - 1990) My Hero

Ryan White was born in Kokomo, Indiana in 1971. A hemophiliac, Ryan regularly needed injections of blood products to survive. In 1985 at the age of 13, it was discovered that Ryan contracted the AIDS virus, sometime during the previous year, from tainted blood. His case got national attention when his school expelled him when they learned about his disease. Not wanting to lie down and die that easily, Ryan and his parents took the school to court, where they won the right for him to return to class. As a result of Ryan's courage and outspokenness to take on his own school board, be became one of the USA's most visible spokesperson on the AIDS crisis. During 1985-1989, he appeared at schools and AIDS fundraisers throughout the country and gave moving testimony before the President's Commission on AIDS. He was befriended by many celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Elton John, Phil Donahue and Elizabeth Taylor, AIDS activists themselves. Despite overwhelming international attention, Ryan never lost his sense of priorities with his schoolwork or life in general. AIDS finally claimed Ryan's life on April 8, 1990 at the age of 18.

Thanks for that fine picture of the extremely talented Maximilian Schell. I have always admired his great performances. Amazingly gifted actor IMO. I am always riveted and haunted by his staggering performance in JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBURG no matter how many times I view that engrossing and mesmerizing courtroom movie.

Hattie was often photographed holding her real Award, which was a small Oscar mounted on a plaque that had text on it, which, for a while, was the type given out for best supporting actors. It was not a full sized Oscar.

The first black man to receive an Oscar for acting was James Baskett in 1948. It was called an "honorary Oscar", but that was so he wouldn't be in competition with white actors, but everyone knew that he deserved an Oscar for his acting in SONG OF THE SOUTH, so they finally gave him one two years later.
