Statement from President Clinton on the Passing of Cicely Tyson
Hillary and I mourn the passing of Cicely Tyson. She brought complex characters to life with dignity and heart, and humanity and depth, always remaining true to herself.
We will always treasure every encounter we ever had with her. I will especially never forget when she led the ceremony welcoming me to Harlem, the neighborhood she loved and embodied so well, when I opened my office in 2001.
Our thoughts and prayers to all who were inspired and empowered by her performances and extraordinary life.
