A brilliant actress. Her unforgettable performance in Sounder really moved me.

That’s the reason I was familiar with her name.

Not just in the USA. I knew her from watching the Netflix version of House of Cards, too.

She was a gifted actress who transcended the typical roles given to black actresses in the 1970s & 1980s.

Been some coverage on BBC here in UK and remember her from the series 'Roots' back in the 70's I think it was.
She was certainly a great actress and I didn't realise how many things she had done in her long life.

R.I.P. Cicely
