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

Just as I am

I loved this book it reminded me of who I am and who I could become as a black woman. This book encouraged me to instill hope in every black child I encounter in my life. There is no excuses for who you are.

there is no white racism ,

Reverse racism

Batak Obama is a traitor and a scum bag he is not an Afrikaner hero being black and pushing yourself forward as a strong black Wonsan is racist and repulsive any race lifting itself up as great race is called racism

Indescribable. I’m thankful Ms. Tyson blessed us with this masterpiece! I’ve laughed and I’ve cried.

Rest In Peace Ms. Tyson! You will be greatly missed!
