The venerated screen actress Cicely Tyson is dead.
If there was a more dignified human being to ever walk the Earth, I don't know who it could be.
I am not one of those artists that runs to the drawing board when a celebrity dies.
Not usually anyways.
I was just thinking about her earlier this week. I really should try to think of something clever to say.
But I have nothing but her own words:
"Whatever good I have accomplished as an actress I believe came in direct proportion to my efforts to portray Black women who have made positive contributions to my heritage." -Cicely Tyson (from her brand new memoir Just As I Am)
