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