Cicely: In honor of one of the great pioneers in African-American/Black Cinema and tv - Cicely Tyson. Cicely was of pure grace with a royal and energetic presence that still resonates with women and girls of color around the world. Cicely was an award-winning film, television and stage actress notable for her roles that exemplified depth, strength, quality, complexity and beauty of the heart and mind. She was very selective about the roles she played and at times found herself out of work because of her stance. Despite her career challenges, she grew to win the hearts of millions across the world in her pivotal roles that shaped how Black Women are viewed and respected in cinema. We honor her greatness and call upon her spirit of resilience, faith, and timeless beauty.
