Cicely Tyson wins Leading Actress Tony for A Trip to Bountiful

I thought of the Negro Ensemble Company. I thought of Roots and Sounder.  The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. Her recent collaboration with Tyler Perry. I thought of Miles Davis. She has travelled a long road that made so many other achievements possible: Denzel, Saldana. May we always honor the gift of our ancestors.

Thank you, mom for introducing me to the theater.
