|Personal Fact of Cicely Tyson
Cicely Tyson is a celebrated American actress who is best known for her performance as Rebecca Morgan in the film Sounder. A high-profile actress, Tyson, through her endurance and excellence created a platform for herself in the field of entertainment that made her an iconic African American figure to reckon with.
Despite coming from a society that ridiculed black women as worthless, Tyson not just proved it otherwise but also raised the bar for the role of women and their involvement in the entertainment industry. Unlike other actresses who accepted whatever roles came their way, Tyson was extremely choosy about her work. More than often, she flatly refused to do films, or take parts solely for the pay check. She was extremely selective about the roles she chose as she wanted them to have depth and meaning.
As such, Tyson’s career trajectory wasn’t always a smooth one. Often she struggled to find meaningful work. However, looking back, Tyson’s career has been adorned with a string of successful acting projects including The Help, The Trip to Bountiful, The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, Sounder, and Roots. A Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree, she also has many other awards in her kitty.
