Nearly two decades later, Cicely Tyson starred alongside Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy in Fried Green Tomatoes, based on the same-named book by Fannie Flag. Younger moviegoers, however, might know her best as Constantine Jefferson in 2011’s The Help, which starred Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Emma Stone. Tyson’s other notable film credits included Hoodlum, Because of Winn-Dixie, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Last Flag Flying and A Fall from Grace, the latter of which was her final movie. In 2018, Tyson received an honorary Oscar, making her the first African-American woman to earn such an honor.
