Beautiful (and STABLE!) Black Hollywood Love

- By

Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis
Though we lost Ossie in 2005, the couple’s fifty-six year marriage is not to be forgotten. The veteran actor-activists met while performing on Broadway in 1945 and remained inseparable until Davis’ passing. The couple offered words of inspiration in their joint biography “In This Life Together With Ruby and Ossie”. A gem from Ruby:  “I thought I loved (Ossie) when we got married, but as I see now, I was only in the kindergarten of the proposition. To arrive at love is like working on a double doctorate in the subject of Life.”
