Phaedra Parks is also heartbroken following the passing of Queen Cicely Tyson. Check out the emotional message that she shared on her social media account below.
‘Yesterday I posted my advance copy of Queen #CicelyTyson book #JustAsIam. This evening my heart wept when I learned of her transition. She was an icon, a mother, model, actress, activist, role model and philanthropist. Her accolades-from Emmys to the Presidential Medal are limitless, her contributions to our culture and the world simply astonishing. As a black woman blessed with chocolate skin, you inspired me and challenged me to be bold and grateful for all of my experiences. #ThankYou again #welldone #blackexcellence personified 👑 #RIP 🙏🏾’ Phaedra said.
