Programming Tribute Airing on January 31 to Include Sounder (1972) and A Man Called Adam (1966)
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will celebrate the life and career of iconic actress Cicely Tyson with a programming tribute on Sunday, January 31. Tyson, who passed away on January 28 at the age of 96, broke barriers throughout her more than seven-decade career, which earned her a Peabody Award, an honorary Oscar ®, a Tony Award®, three Emmys®, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Her most recent Emmy nomination came just last year. In 2018, she had her hand and footprints cemented in time at the TCM Chinese Theater Imax® in Hollywood during the TCM Classic Film Festival.
The following is the complete schedule for TCM’s on-air tribute to Cicely Tyson:
