Cicely Tyson,92, was recently honored at the annual “Women in Hollywood” event hosted by Elle Magazine (looking so absolutely beautiful)!
I have been familiar with Cicely Tyson since Roots. It was 1977 and I remember watching Roots as a family. Don’t we all remember the line, “my name is not Toby, my name is Kunta Kinte”. Ms. Tyson playing Binta, Kunta Kinte’s mother. . And most recently, she played Constantine Bates, Emma Stone’s nanny, in The Help. Another memorable and strong character.
Cicely has long inspired me for her grace, beauty and choice of roles both in television and movies.
Ms. Tyson says, “Age is just a number. Life and aging are the greatest gifts that we could possibly ever have.”
