Cicely Tyson was born (December 19, 1933) and raised in Harlem, New York by William Tyson and Theodosia Tyson. The photo above is from stunning couple in August 1968 attending the premiere of ‘The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter’ in New York City. Tyson married legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis on November 26, 1981, and they were married for three-and-a-half years. The matter of Davis’ physical (and emotional) abuse of Tyson has been a source of great frustration.
