Cicely Tyson was a pioneer who shattered racial stereotypes and knocked down walls so future generations of Black actors could walk through them. We honor and remember her for her dignity, grace and insistence on only portraying strong Black women on screen.
As we head into Black History Month, her words of wisdom ring even more true: We must continue to fight, continue to climb mountains and continue to do the work that's needed to achieve *real* equality.
