Spike Lee, Tia Mowry, Lance Gross, and more celebrate the trailblazing actress and civil rights activist, Ruby Dee.
"People, I just found out the loss of spiritual mother, the late, great Ruby Dee. I'm crushed by this bad news and I know ruby has already been embraced in a warm loving hug from her life partner of 57 years —Mr. Ossie Davis. It has been one of my great blessings in life to work with two of the finest artists and activists -Ruby and Ossie were in the battlefields a with Paul Robeson, Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther king. Ruby and Ossie served as a living example that one could be an artist and a activist too, that one could be an artist and still deal with what it means to be a black woman and a black man in these United States. God bless you Ruby Dee. God bless you Ossie Davis. The both of you told us ‘to always do the right thing,’" posted the Do The Right Thing director.
