Sad to hear that Ruby Dee passed away yesterday. She and Ossie Davis were such a beautiful couple. I loved them so. In the best way that I can love a celebrity couple. I loved them as a couple and as two whole and complete human beings. I have listened over and over to Ossie's speech at the funeral of Malcolm X. "Malcolm was our manhood" he said. Ahhh swoon. Oh Ruby, what you taught me about love. About being beautiful and black and owning that. About being an artist. About being committed to my craft. Thank you Ruby Dee. Thank you for being.
