Though she stood a community of 5 ft. Three, Tyson played a gigantic roll into spelling notions of what kind of characters black women could play in Hollywood. She refused to play roles that she found stereotypical for black actors like drug addicts and didn't take part in blaxploitation films of the sixties and seventies. Ah, bold step to take when very few roles were offered to black women. As president, Obama noted in his lengthy, lengthy tribute to her on Instagram quote at a time when parts for actors who looked like her weren't easy to come by. She refused to take on roles that reduced black women to their gender or their race. Sometimes, that meant she would go years without work. But she took pride, knowing that whenever her face was on camera, she would be playing a character who was a human being flawed but resilient, Perfect, but not despite Not despite but because of their imperfections. Cicely Tyson was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the 1972 film Sounder and won two Emmys for her spellbinding performance in the TV movie in 1974, the autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. She worked well into her eighties, including a return to the stage that won her a Tony Award for a trip to the bountiful in 2013. Here's Tyson in an interview on W. N. Y C in 2013 talking about playing the lead character in a play. As an actor of advanced age. I in the course of my life have witnessed the treatment of elders. Aziz. They get on in life and how they are, uh, shoved aside put in to some strange home where nobody comes to see them or They don't know anyone. And it was important for me to make people aware of the fact that they are still human beings and still valuable. Uh, they have tremendous contributions still to make Cicely Tyson's death comes the same week as her autobiography. Just as I AM, was released in the final pages, she wrote quote. I want to be recalled as one who squared my shoulders in the service of black woman As one who made us walk taller and envision greater for ourselves.

"On the popular messaging board. Read it. Tyler Erlich is a horticulturist in Greeley, Colorado. And he splits his time on reddit between a group known as acid, Marxism and a community now in the spotlight. Wall Street bets, which describes its members as degenerates. You know, it's a bunch of guys spanning emoji s and a bunch of really toxic masculinity. But you could get past that. Then you see people like I'm in this like this is making life changing announced money if you can sit through the homophobia, slurs and casual misogyny. Some of the red Attar's here are savvy financial sloughs, and one of them figured out that major hedge funds were betting against game stop. So they wanted to screw Wall Street over by rocketing up the price of the stock, mostly through the easy to use trading up Robin Hood. And it worked. And there's funny people in there like I don't have a job. You know, I've been screwed of work all this stuff, But then we're all just idiots trying to make money on the stock market. Ha ha Uh, Erlich Zone purchase of 500 Bucks worth of Gamestop was among thousands of buys that helped the stock go from $20 a share earlier this month. To a high of nearly $350. On Wednesday, Erlich posted about it in another Reddit forum, which are known as sub credits. I actually made a post on a different Subreddit called the People versus Goliath, because that's what I saw this as in Michigan's Upper peninsula. Realtor Lucas Davis was all in. He, too, saw the stunt in lofty terms. Parallels along with, you know Teddy Roosevelt ended up doing Bring down in all the monopolies back in the 19 tens. That's one interpretation. But there is another side to this. Wall Street investors reported receiving nasty and harassing online attacks. One even said his Children were threatened. Davidson didn't engage in any of that. But he did post a MIM in the group, saying members want to quote Bring down the hedge funds. This is a great way to stick it to these people, and then, when they realized they can also stand to profit off of it. They think that's absolutely delicious. In Colorado, Erlich agrees, seeing the action as a reddit uprising of sorts. But he admits that his own game stop investment was in part fueled by a desire for quick cash, He says many in the group might just get away with a nice profit. Maybe they're not going to become millionaires this week, but they might like some thousands of dollars they otherwise would never have had. Losing lots of money is a very good possibility, too. But in pure dollar terms, hedge funds are the big loser for now. One estimate. Investors who bet against Gamestop lost more than $14 billion in a single day of trading. Bobby Allen, NPR NEWS, San Francisco We're remembering the life of actress Cicely Tyson this morning. In a career that lasted more than six decades, Tyson shattered stereotypes with her portrayals of strong black women. Tyson starred in acclaimed productions such as Roots Sounder and The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. She brought a study depth to her roles, and she spoke to NPR's weekend. All things considered earlier this month. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. But I was a great observer, Tyson said. She later found her voice through acting..

It's remarkable to me that I have arrived at where I am today because I had anticipated it. No matter what happened in my life, it did not. Ah did not deter break from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. Tyson commanded attention in such movies as Sounder and The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. She won Emmys and at age 88.

Does it seem that way to you? Well, it's remarkable to me that I have arrived. Where I am today, because I had that anticipated it. I made the decision based on things that happened to be along the way. And I just kept going, You know, no matter what happened in my life it did not did not deter berate from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. You write very movingly of your parents, even though you are very honest about the difficulties they had in their relationship, and also frankly, some of the difficulties You had with them. Your memory seems so sharp like I remember you writing about the delicious potatoes your mother would make and yes, at lunch and it just it just amazing to me that you could remember.

We could. I learned that I could speak. Through other people. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions in order to understand what they were. Well, I wanted to know what planted them just say and do things that they did. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. Was a silencer, but I was a great observer. Remember, you're writing about the effect. That's a role like sounder had on people where you played Rebecca and I think many people might know the story. Poor Paul Winfield played against you as the Nathan and you played Rebecca and it's It's a story of kind of a loving black couple. Basically, just trying to live against that almost exactly right. Yes, And what amazing was you said that some of the reactions that people got when, like, for example, television writers, saying that they didn't realize that black Children called there Parents, Dad and, Mom, can you imagine that? Understand motion for sounder and after I finished after the film was completed, this journalist said. That he discovered a bit of bigotry and himself. But he realized that this black boy, which should buy first son, Kevin Hooks called his father Daddy. On and when I asked why, he said, That's what my son calls May and I'm not.

You know why Pat my son call his black father Daddy as his sons. Called him and it was at that time that I decided I could not afford the luxury of just big fractures.
