After a long, celebrated career, Emmy award winning actress CICELY TYSON left us to be with the Ancestors on January 28, 2021. To the surprise of no one who knew her well, Mrs. Tyson remained very active up until her last days. In fact: She just released her book, "Cicely Tyson, Just As I Am," a memoir, on January 26th, 2021 and was actively promoting it on her social media channels! Surely a great read and a must have book for everyone. CICELY TYSON will be sorely missed by all of us who had the great fortune to be inspired by her and also to have enjoyed her performances.
„For years, when people would ask me “when are you going to write a book?” I would respond, “when I have something to say.” Well, now I have something to say. #JustAsIAm”
