Cicely Tyson: Sounder

Before enjoying a huge career as a leading lady on the small screen, Cicely Tyson wowed big screen audiences with her role as Rebecca Morgan in Sounder. She played a 1930s wife and mother who must keep her family intact after her husband is sent to a prison camp for petty crime. Tyson’s powerful, stoic and stately performance earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, which is an accolade she should have undoubtedly won. (Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
