The year of Ms. Tyson's birth has been variously reported as 1925, 1933 and 1939.

"I don't see myself as having this vast body of work. When I was honored a couple of years ago, they ran clips from all the things I had been in, and I sat in the audience going, Who's that? When did I do that?" --Cicely Tyson in INTERVIEW, September 1997

Awarded honorary doctorates from Atlanta University, Loyola University and Lincoln University.

She has received a National Council of Negro Woman Award.
