some people you think will be immortal and live on forever.
cicely tyson was one of those actresses for me.
even in her older age,
she was still giving us that work in front of that camera.
i enjoyed her role as annalise keating’s mama on “how to get away with murder“.
when someone has lived a full life of accomplishments at such an old age,
we need to see it as a blessing.
many don’t get a chance to live that long.
we lost our black legend and queen,

cicely was a pioneer in this industry as a black actress.
she opened the doors for many to get a chance to sit at the table.
i’m saddened to hear about her passing,
but it was a blessing to be able to enjoy the mark she left on this world.
she will live on within her work and be an inspiration for generations to come.
i’m glad she was handed her flowers while she was alive to receive them.
She got her flowers while she could still smell them. Im so glad. pic.twitter.com/SGhJAopb2C
