Day 21 - Black Love (Married Couple)

“Before there was Beyoncé and Jay-Z, there was Ozzie and Ruby Dee.” 

I posted this 20 weeks ago and felt it most apropos for this month. No other couple in entertainment has done so much for their community as Ozzie and Ruby Dee Davis. Not only did they breakdown barriers in Hollywood with their acting careers, they used their status to help Civil Right causes. They marched shoulder to shoulder with Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. and Malcolm X. They’ve both won many awards and honors for their acting and activism endeavors.  I think it’s amazing how they worked side by side on film and fought hand in hand against injustice and oppression.  I can’t imagine the friendship, love, and bond they possessed.
