Ruby Dee 100 -- October 27, 2022

Actress and civil rights activist Ruby Dee was born 100 years ago today, on 27-October-1922. I remember watching and reading about her and her husband Ossie Davis for most of my life. She played Rachel Robinson in The Jackie Robinson Story.  She finally got an Oscar nomination in 2007.  She belonged to CORE in the 1960s.
