Cicely Tyson’s Household Declares Public Viewing Set To Take Place In New York Metropolis
Many fans around the world are still mourning the death of the legendary Cicely Tyson. On Wednesday, her family announced an official tour that will allow fans to say goodbye for good.
According to USA Today, Cicely’s family announced that they would rest in the historic Abyssinian Baptist Church, where she also worshiped. The tour will take place on February 15th from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Those who wish to take the viewing must of course follow COVID-19 protocols, which include wearing face masks and social distancing. Of course, no photos are taken while viewing.
As previously reported, Cicely Tyson sadly passed away last week on January 28th at the age of 96.
She was in the process of promoting her new memoir “Just As I Am”. Two days before her death, her interview with Gayle King was published on CBS This Morning. During the interview, Cicely was asked if she felt she was busy and she said, “Yes! That’s why I’m still here. I mean what my life became is not what I expected. Little did I know that I was going to touch anyone. “
She was also asked what people should remember when their time came, and she replied, “That I did my best.”
Cicely was mourned by all of Black Hollywood, including Tyler Perry, who had worked closely together over the last few years of her life and career. On the day of her death he said: “This one brought me to my knees! She was the grandmother I never had and the wisdom tree I could always sit under to fill my cup. My heart breaks in one beat while I celebrate her life the next. To think that she lived for 96 years and that I was allowed to be part of the last 16 gives me great pleasure. “
He also shared a tribute video celebrating their birthday at Tyler Perry Studios.
We continue to offer our deepest condolences to Cicely Tyson’s loved ones.
