Emmy- and Tony Award-winning actor Cicely Tyson has died, according to a statement from her manager, Larry Thompson. She was 96.

 

“I have managed Miss Tyson’s career for over 40 years, and each year was a privilege and blessing,” Thompson said. “Cicely thought of her new memoir as a Christmas tree decorated with all the ornaments of her personal and professional life. Today she placed the last ornament, a Star, on top of the tree.”

 

A star in theater, television, and film, Tyson famously resisted the sort of Blaxploitation roles Hollywood tried to force many actors of color into in the 1970s.
