Cicely Tyson, Michelle Burford (With)

One of the most important actresses of our time, Cicely Tyson — at 95 — is finally sharing her life story. The recipient of an honorary Oscar and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the iconic actress whose defining roles in Sounder, Roots and the The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman unveils the pain and suffering she felt as a Black woman in America. She describes her amazing life with emotion and transparency not often found in celebrity memoirs.

“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
