“Of all the moments and experiences we shared together, this was one of my favorites: The Legends Ball Weekend in 2005. The idea for the ball was born because I wanted to celebrate HER, and to celebrate HER. other remarkable black women who forged a path and built a bridge for me and generations to come.
“What a joy to honor her and to feel her receive it! I liked her hat so much that she sent it to me afterwards. Cicely decided early on that his acting job would be more than a job. She used her career to illuminate black humanity. The roles she played reflected her values; she never compromised. His life so fully lived is a testimony of Greatness.
