Cicely Tyson was born in America on December 19, 1924. She is an actress and former fashion model (she is still looking unbelievably hot!) who rose to fame starring in the incredible 1972 film, ‘Sounder’.
Tyson has recieved numerous awards and nominations for her awe-inspiring performances and has been a beautiful role model for women across the globe.
I highly recommend watching ‘Sounder’. Based on the award-winning novel by William H. Armstrong, Sounder offers an educational and emotional insight into the life of a black family during the Great Depression. You can find the trailer here.
I am going to be doing my best to use my platform as a way to support #blacklivesmatter. Do your best to spread awareness and highlight the importance of this movement.
My biological clock is ticking and I don’t want to bring children into a world where racism exists.
