I see a black woman, a black actress that, in time, came into her own. She was also one of the few "sistas" that showed me how and where to "channel" my own fire, persistence and truths. For she was herself, which is why Ms. Tyson could play a myriad of film roles and make the role believable because many of us ARE what she illustrated in the role that she presented on film and to the world. Ms. Tyson did not "have a place", she was a trend-setter that wanted to right wrongs and was never afraid or intimidated. Like sista Ree-Ree, she was always there on the side-lines and never sold out. For that, they both get a nod from me. I will always believe that, one of the reasons that Ms. Tyson was such a great actress is because in prepping for a role, she had to also "feel" that role. She left her legacy of awesome acting. It is not about filling her shoes. It is about learning what a master teacher achieved. RIP, Ms. Cicily.

Jesus died for you was buried and rose again on the third day according to the scriptures. If you confess with your mouth Jesus is lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. please repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior.

(炉`鈥.鈥⒙绰) This woman is unparalleled in her gift of acting. For I cannot even think of ANY other actor/actress of any background that can match her expression of visceral passion through characters that humanize the Spirit with such poignant, sensitivity and strength -- to balance -- while exuding an unshakable "dignity" in her command of roles.

Though she was blessed with a rich, long life, I still feel the human illusion of loss, sadly. 馃槩 But still, I know that Heaven is now blessed with her return ... to set out upon a new course to map, as she has left everyone with her unique signature of pride & propriety in the face of all typecasting and ill-conceived conservatism.

We now Honor you my dear . . . 馃槆 Surely, your role now continues through all the many that have found the mettle to dignify God's people through your demonstration of defining how life is meant to be led.

She will always be my favorite actress. She was such a beautiful woman. I could watch her and listen to her speak all day. She spoke with purpose and the roles she chose to play also with that same mindset. We need to walk and live in our purpose. What a wonderful legacy to leave. " Yeshua said, unto her I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me though he were dead, Yet shall he live John 11:25 KJV." RIP daughter of the Most High.

Beautiful memories, Ms. Tyson blessed so many. My condolences and prayers to her family and friends who knew her best. But I remember well one of her seldom mentioned TV movies, "The Road to Galveston". My mother was in the throws of Dementia & Alzheimers. My husband and our very small family was often barely holding it together. "The Road to Galveston" was an honest look and struggle of the mind stealing illness of Dementia & Alzheimers, but Ms. Tyson's role as a caretaker encouraged us. My husband and I often discuss the need for this movie to be a part of the Alzheimers' libraries and support groups in every city and state. Thank you Ms. Tyson for all your roles and the love you shared through your various works. Your "best" lives on in our hearts.

An American treasure,gift from God-for those who haven't followed Cicely Tyson over the years,do it now you'll be better for it.
I was just a young white girl Bronx born to poverty,which at 60 will die in as well(abusive childhood,etc,LIFEtime survivor) Rich in heart is how I've led my life only seeing people as people,crimes committed against me were only committed by my own race.No matter what...
throughout my challenged life,as Ms.Ross sang it, Reach out n touch somebodys hand make this world a better place if you can馃槏

Cicely Tyson was the epitome of the best of Humanity as God intended.
Kind soul I felt an instant connection to years ago watching her as 'Miss Jane Pittman'馃挅 Loving,affectionate,authentic,genuine,unapologetically,
Just Cicely-my grandmother was this special an Angel for me-for only 21yrs馃挃

Though I'm not rich nor famous I'm just Me...Cicely Tyson has lived in my heart all these yrs.,thank you Lord.

Also, beyond words for Oprah Winfrey-who's taught us all to just be our 'Authentic Self' condolences to you for your loss. Your many yrs.of coming into our living rooms -on the wings- of a woman like Cicely Tyson has given our daily lives abit more meaning.

I raised my 2 on my own,on Long Island N.Y.-"treat others as u wish to be treated"....

I was priveleged while working in a school yrs ago on L.I.N.Y. to meet another great treasure, Ruby Bridges- we hugged,a moment I carry in my heart...Women of Grace

Rest in paradise
馃挏 Cicely Tyson
