The wonderful Ruby Dee and her grandson Muta’Ali. This photo was taken at her 90th birthday celebration in Harlem, NY. Ruby Dee was an actress and leading civil rights and social justice activist.
Ruby Dee died at her home on Wednesday June 11, 2014. She will be missed by family, friends and fans. She was always kind to me and a great actress who knew how to work the camera and the crowd.
Muta’Ali has recently finished a documentary on his famous grandmother: Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee. It premiers this month in NYC.
