RIP Ruby Dee (1922-2014) + Rare Ozzie and Ruby TV Show featuring Gil Scott-Heron Performance [FULL SHOW][VIDEO] #RIPRubyDee


As the World prepares to say farewell to Ruby Dee, we wanted to share an amazing and very rare video featuring Ruby and her husband, Ozzie Davis, on their show, Ozzy and Ruby.  We love how Ossie Davis & Ruby Dee interact with Gil and with classic Gil Scott-Heron tracks. This video really showcases her grace, warmth, talent and spirit.    This makes us feel a little better on this sad day.
