I want to be recalled as one who squared my shoulders in the service of Black women, as one who made us walk taller & envision greater for ourselves.

#CicelyTyson was a woman before her time. Her work was exquisite -- broke down barriers. The pioneer of "Black is Beautiful." A woman whose ebony skin & complex braid patterns disarmed the world and made space for the rest of us to show up in our boldness. #BlackHistoryBootCamp
#CicelyTyson’s autobiography is a must read. And while the cover photo is stunning, I literally gasped when I first opened the book & saw this photo I had never seen before of Tyson wearing the dress she wore to the NY premiere of #Sounder. The photo was taken by Lord Snowden.
I can't wait to read @IAmCicelyTyson's new book, #JustAsIAm, which details her six-decade career on and off the screen. Without the gains of women like her, women like me would have much greater pains to bear in the arts. Pre-order wherever books are sold, or get one on Jan 26!
Thank you, Lupita for your support, you too are an inspiration for women every where.

The glitter, the ribbons, the garnish I've experienced during my life—as wonderful as those things are, I have little desire to reflect on them solely. What I am far more interested in is the tree that represents my life and strength and condition of its roots. —CT #JustAsIAm
