Publisher Description

“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 Freedom 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

Great!

I read this autobiography with no expectations to find out more about the late Cicely Tyson. I came back fortified that a God fearing women of color with class has had a long career in performing arts bared her soul. She is a force to reckon with. She lived till the age of 96 years old! Her career has had an impact into the Black culture and how we see Black women at large. She is an icon and a great role model for everyone who want to represent the Black culture with a standard of class. RIP Cycely Tyson.
