“The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within — strength, courage, dignity.” ~Ruby Dee
Born October 27, 1922, she was a legendary actress, civil rights activist, playwright, journalist and beloved wife/window of famed actor Ossie Davis. Starring in films such as “A Raisin in the Sun”, “Do the Right Thing” and “American Gangster” she was a true legend. Her unconventional theories on how to make a marriage work [Including opening up about her open marriage] are what made Dee legendary. A true beauty. We may have lost a legend but Ossie has gained his love back.
Rest in Peace Lady Ruby
