Cicely Tyson dead at 96



Her last work was on the show How to get away with Murder a year ago. Yes she worked until last year.

Amazingly I think Iíve only ever seen one thing she has been in it was a role reversal version of A Christmas Carol where she was a female version of Ebenezer Scrooge. I remember liking it well enough when I saw it.

Iíve been meaning to watch Roots for years. I think I even have the DVD set. I really need to get on that.
