Ossie Davie and Ruby Dee documentary In The Works
Now THIS is great news. After years of loving them as a couple, Ossie Davis and Ruby’s love of each other, life and activism is now becoming a documentary. Ozzie (who passed in 2005) and Ruby’s grandson Muta’Ali Muhammad and his film partner Jevon “NJ” Frank will spearhead the project with lots of input from Ms. Dee. Muhammad said the film will focus on Davis and Dee’s 57 year marriage as well as their social activism. At this point, they’re looking to show the first portion of the documentary in the fall to celebrate Dee’s 90th birthday and hope to have it completed by Black History Month in 2013. Muhammad and Frank have started a Kickstarter site to fund the documentary. You can read more on The Huffington Post.
