“The greatest gift is not being afraid to question.”

- Ruby Dee

 

Rest in peace to a remarkable and talented woman, who not only fought for civil rights but was a beautiful and talented actress for well over half a century. She was one of my mother's idols, and I watched many a film with her growing up alongside actors like Sidney Portier and her husband Ossie Davis.  She was a playwright and poet as well, among other accolades.
