Cicely Tyson is a Celebration of Talent not Celebrity

Last night Cicely Tyson won a Tony Award. Tyson has been absent from the Broadway stage for 30 years. Tyson is an incredible talent with an incredible professional resume. Tyson is famous for being a demonstrative talent. Today so many people seek fame, and I mean instant fame. Go on Youtube, and you will see people singing, dancing, twerking, flirting, fighting, cursing, shouting, speaking…in other words doing everything in their quest for instant fame, but when Tyson first came to town fame was not the goal. Working your craft was the goal and ultimately fame might follow. We live in a land that celebrates the Kardashians for being famous for being famous it is delightful to see a woman of grace receive an honor for actually doing something.
