“We have lost a true star ... . She’s an icon, an activist and most importantl­y an amazing woman — who blazed a trail that has shown so many how to see women of color in a different light . ... She convinced me in believing that anything was achievable, if you put your heart into it. I mean, she inspired Mae Jemison to follow her dreams of becoming an astronaut and that’s exactly what Mae did.”

— ZOE SALDAÑA

“Forget shaking the table, she built it!”

— CELIA ROSE GOODING
