Black Love: Ruby Dee Shares Exclusive Photos Of Her and Ossie Davis

The actors and civil rights activists married in 1948.

[Essence] “The idea that a good marriage is made in heaven and swung down on a golden cord like a gift from God did not coincide with my lifelong observations.

Yes the wedding can be a beautiful and exciting, expensive event, or it can be a handshake, or a jump over a broom  but it is just that – an event, the one that precedes the marriage.” Ossie and Ruby together in the 1960s.
