EXCLUSIVE: Ruby Dee Shares Thoughts On Marriage and Loving Ossie Davis, Plus Photos

Ruby Dee Ossie Davis
When we think of iconic Black love, the first couple that comes to mind is legendary actress Ruby Dee and her late husband, actor Ossie Davis. Their love story spanned over five decades and continues to inspires generations to believe in true love and the power and happiness it brings.

Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee is a new documentary in the works that carries the legacy of Ruby and Ossie’s love forward for the first time in feature form. The story, told through the eyes of their grandson, Muta’Ali, is filled with never-before-seen family archival material and interviews with Ruby and Ossie, who share their thoughts on love, life and success.

Muta’Ali says his intention is to give his grandmother the documentary as a gift for her 90th birthday in October. He hopes to create a message of love, art and activism.

Can’t wait to see Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee? We couldn't either. Muta’Ali gave us a sneak peak, sharing exclusive photos and sound bites from some of Ruby and Ossie’s interviews.
