Aw, man, Cloris Leachman yesterday, and Cicely Tyson today!
I know! But you can’t be too distraught. What lives they lead!
First black person to host SNL.
Huh - never knew she was married to Miles Davis.
First black woman. Richard Pryor was the first black person, and several other black men hosted the show before Cicely.
I first saw The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman in class at school, and I was riveted by it.
Double checking who I missed, I came across this interesting article ranking SNL’s black cast members.
(pardon that hijack)
I first saw here here, when I was in jr. high.
I loved the film.
I will always remember her as Miss Jane Pittman. R.I.P.
She was one of his favorite punching bags. Davis was a sick puppy.
Yeah I knew he was a loser in that regard.
Wonderful speaking voice though.
