Hollywood is reeling from the loss of two celebrated stars.

In this week's dual PEOPLE cover stories, family and friends pay tribute to legendary actor Sidney Poitier, who died Thursday at the age of 94, and Full House star Bob Saget, who died Sunday at 65 years old.

Poitier was known both as a trailblazing performer and activist. In 1964, he became the first Black actor to win the Oscar for Best Actor for his work on the 1963 film, Lilies of the Field.

"He just had this power and charm and wit and humor and danger," actress Lee Grant, who costarred with Poitier in 1967's In the Heat of the Night, tells PEOPLE. "He had a sense of morality that went through all of his films."

Beyond acting, Poitier was an advocate who fought for civil rights, often alongside his close friend of nearly 80 years, Harry Belafonte. They helped organize the March on Washington and plan Martin Luther King Jr.'s memorial after his assassination.

The singer's daughter Shari Belafonte tells PEOPLE that "losing Sidney is probably the most difficult thing my father has had to fathom, more so than losing Martin L. King."
