Ruby Dee: actress, poet, playwright, screenwriter, journalist and activist. October 27, 1922 – June 11, 2014

I had the honor of meeting Ruby Dee in 2005, when I hosted the Civil Rights Museum’s Freedom Awards. Paul Ruseseabagina, Oprah and Ruby Dee were the honorees.

I want to weep at the thought of that day. I remember wanting to fall to the ground, to kick and scream. I also wanted to shine and sing and fly. Without warning, an understanding emerged in me. I remembered a fuller picture of who I am that I didn’t know I had forgotten. And I am a better person for it. My life changed that day in Memphis.

I wrote a piece about my experience. Below is an excerpt that describes my moments with Ruby Dee.

#LegendaryStyle with Johnny Wright of Optimum Salon Hair Care

As you know, Johnny Wright is responsible for the beautifully luscious locks of the the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.  So he knows a thing or two about a thing or two when it comes to gorgeous healthy hair. And you know I’m always interested in all things hair. Well, I was able to sit down with him for a chat and he shared some secrets and we discussed some fabulous products from Optimum AMLA legend that we both think are FABU, like the Rejuvenating Oil and the Treasured Temple Edge Tamer. Nothing like a product that does what is claims to. There’s a full Optimum Amla Legend haircare, styling and hair color portfolio, so I’d love to hear what your faves are!
