“`Turner Classic Movies  will honor Cicely Tyson with a hand and foot print ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood during the ninth annual TCM Classic Film Festival on Friday, April 27th. Tyson, an Emmys and Tonys Award winner, and an  Oscars and Golden Globes nominee, has worked in the entertainment industry for over sixty years, and has long been known for both her activism efforts,  and for the dynamic characters she has brought to life in film, television, and theater.                                 CICELY TYSON –>

“`From her acclaimed performance in the groundbreaking Sounder, and work in the seminal television movies, Roots and The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, to award-winning role in the Broadway revival, A Trip to Bountiful, Tyson has been a tireless performer and a champion of civil liberties.  Cicely garnered recognition from industry awards groups and Civil Rights organizations throughout her iconic career;  and has been the recipient of honors from the NAACP and Kennedy Center. In 2016, Tyson was bestowed with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.

“`It marks the eighth consecutive year TCM will feature a ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre. In 2011, Peter O’Toole was an honoree, Kim Novak in 2012, Jane Fonda in 2013, Jerry Lewis in 2014, Christopher Plummer in 2015, Francis Ford Coppola in 2016, and Carl and Rob Reiner in 2017.
