    Cicely Tyson was the first actress to be seen on televison with her natural hair, not coiffured, it helped launch and popularize the the use of the afros by women and men of the mid-1960s.

    From the very onset of her career, Cicely always played strong Black woman roles and never used stereotypical behavior.
