Remembering the late great Cicely Tyson - (December 19, 1924 – January 28, 2021)

Cicely Tyson at the AFRICAN BURIAL GROUND

Global -
“I too, sing America
I am the darker brother
They send me to eat in the kitchen when company comes
But I laugh and eat well and grow strong

“Tomorrow, I'll be at the table when company comes
Nobody'll dare say to me, "Eat in the kitchen"

“Then, besides
They'll see how beautiful we are and be ashamed
I, too, am America ”
