She always carried herself with such poise, grace, beauty, class, and elegence. She was a social activist and very intelligent. She was an amazing actress that never accepted a role that perpetuated negative stereotypes of black women.

She aged like fine wine and always carried herself with dignity. RIP Queen. The world and especially the black community lost an icon today.

January isn't even over and 2021 already shaping up to be just as trash as the year before.

RIP Ms. Tyson. And thank you.

Damn I had to surf the web to see if it was true. I am so sorry to hear that! We were just talking about Cicley Tyson about 2 days ago how old she was and how good she looked for her age! She will be missed RIP and condolences to the family. She is one of the greatest actresses that walked this earth!

American Masters on PBS just did a tribute to the old school Black actresses. Her and Pam grier were the only ones featured that were still alive when it aired last week. So glad for positive contribution to the culture. Rest easy ��

This is tearing me apart... Cicely had that sophistication, elegance and Grace in which we all don't consume in today's society. We have had the best pleasure in of knowing her in our lifetime. Now we have this ignorance, narcissistic with evil wicked and false prophets. R.I.P. Cicely Tyson

@9:33PM I saw that documentary too! It's a history lesson for all to check out. There are so many more that could've been on the program, i.e. Vonetta McGee, Rosalind Cash, Tamara Dobson, Ruby Dee....the list of wonderful Black actresses can go on and on!!

RIP Goddess as you are welcomed back into the ancestral realm. Well done.

@10:15. Agreed. Before she retired from acting, I met vonetta and she was a true class act. There's a lot of underrated talent out there that the younger generation should know about. Hopefully the Grio channel won't go the way of Bounce and continue airing these old(er) movies.

This beautiful and talented woman is so an ancestor.

It hurts losing our great elders. So sad that this generation doesn't respect their elders. I'm so glad my parents raised me to have honor the elders that mean well. I'm not looking forward to growing old with Generation Z(ombie).

Here’s a link to hear a recent interview of Ms. Tyson who’s memoir, JUST AS I AM, was released shortly before her passing. She discusses acting, her parent, the importance of her roles, and Miles Davis.

Another great one passes on. I saw thet PBS documentary as well and was moved by all those beautiful queens on screen. Ms Tyson was like no other. She was always very intentional about the roles she chose and for that alone she deserves all of out respect.

The meaning of class. A true legend!

Definitely one of a kind.
No Black actress today can't touch her

She was one of the pioneers of BLM. When you look the words: Icon, Legendary, and Queen in Webster's Dictionary her picture should be there.
