Welcome to 28 Days of Black History Makers, presented by AT&T.

The series got under way Feb. 1 with BET host Mo’Nique, who won an Oscar for her role in 2009’s Precious.

During the funnylady’s interview, she reflected on her most memorable complement surrounding that Oprah Winfrey- and Tyler Perry-produced film.

“The night of the permiere of Precious, I saw Sidney Poitier from my car,” she told The Breakdown Show hosts Audley Stephenson and Dave Mendonca.

“He was already on the red carpet. And I said to my husband, ‘Oh my God. There’s Sydney Poitier! I would love to meet him.’

“So now the movie’s over, everyone’s leaving… I’m almost the last person to leave the theater. And I turn around and my husband says, ‘Look who’s behind you.’ It was Sydney Poitier,” Mo’Nique continued. “And he says to me, ‘Young lady, I did not see one insecure moment in your performance.’ That was priceless coming from him.”

    In November 2010 I was inducted into the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas.

    I’m a good candidate to be included in your Blog Talk radio program on notable African Americans. I’m the first and only African American to be certified to announce rodeos for the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Many people are shocked to hear that there are a few African American rodeo cowboys who are making a difference.
