Profile Bio Text
Pioneering actor who was among Hollywood`s first - years ahead of Sidney Poitier - to crush the Stepin Fetchit stereotype of black males as shiftless illiterates. Although in some pictures Edwards would portray subservient characters (e.g. `General` George C. Scott`s valet in `Patton` (1970)), he delivered true dignity in his performances. He is especially remembered for his leading role in `Home of the Brave` (1949).
