 Cicely Tyson

Before we begin tonight's show with my guest Dr. Stepheny Finnie, I wanted to acknowledge the passing of the fantastic and always gracious Cicely Tyson.

Cicely Tyson was an actress and fashion model. In a career spanning more than seven decades, she became known for her portrayal of strong African-American women. Throughout her career, Tyson refused to play drug addicts, prostitutes, or maids, roles she thought demeaning to Black women. But when a good part came along, she grabbed hold of it with tenacity.

Refusing to participate in the blaxploitation movies that became popular in the late ’60s, she waited until 1972 to return to the screen in the drama “Sounder,” which captured several Oscar nominations, including one for Tyson as best actress.

Tyson made history when she became the first African American to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress for 1974’s TV film The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. 

Despite her achievements onstage and in films, much of the actress’s best work was done for television. In addition to “Miss Jane Pittman,” she did an outstanding job in “Roots,” “The Wilma Rudolph Story,” “King: The Martin Luther King Story,” “When No One Would Listen,” “A Woman Called Moses.” Recent film appearances include Alex Cross, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, and The Help.

The legendary actress promoting her long-awaited memoir, “Just As I Am,” when she passed away on Jan. 28, is now a No. 1 bestselling author.
