"On Monday February 15th, people traveled across the country and stood in a block-long line to pay respects to Cicely Tyson at a public viewing. Tyson was the first Black woman to have a recurring role in a dramatic television series, the 1963 drama 'East Side, West Side.' Her performance as a sharecropper’s wife in the 1972 movie 'Sounder' cemented her stardom and earned her an Oscar nomination. She went on to win two Emmy Awards for playing the 110-year-old former slave in the 1974 television drama 'The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman' and another Emmy 20 years later for 'Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All.'" - Los Angeles Times

Celebrate Tyson's life on screen and in print with these selections from the library.
