Black History Month: A Ruby Dee Tribute
Ruby Dee was born Ruby Ann Wallace on October 27, 1924 in Cleveland, Ohio. Ruby Dee's career as an actress has been nothing short of phenomenal. She was talented enough and lucky enough to garner some of the best roles for black women in the 1950s and 1960s. Dee has appeared in over fifty films. In 1950, she played Jackie Robinson's wife in The Jackie Robinson Story and forty years later, she played his mother in the television production, The Court Martial of Jackie Robinson. Throughout her film and television career, Dee has been selective and has brought that selectivity and dignity to every role she plays. She is particularly proud of her one-woman show, Zora Is My Name, about pioneering novelist, folklorist, anthropologist, Zora Neale Hurston. On this day of Black History Month, I solute Ruby Dee!!!
