About the book:
“In her long and extraordinary career, Cicely Tyson has not only succeeded as an actor, she has shaped the course of history.”-President Barack Obama, 2016 Presidential Medal of Honor ceremony
Just As I Am is my truth. It is me, plain and unvarnished, with the glitter and garland set aside. In these pages, I am indeed Cicely, the actress who has been blessed to grace the stage and screen for six decades. Yet I am also the church girl who once rarely spoke a word. I am the teenager who sought solace in the verses of the old hymn for which this book is named. I am a daughter and mother, a sister, and a friend. I am an observer of human nature and the dreamer of audacious dreams. I am a woman who has hurt as immeasurably as I have loved, a child of God divinely guided by His hand. And here in my ninth decade, I am a woman who, at long last, has something meaningful to say.” -Cicely Tyson

We have lost a treasure of a woman! She has been a guiding light and role model of grace and class for women of color all over the world. Her talents cannot be denied and she will be missed. God rest her soul.
