Ruby Dee and the late Ossie Davis tell the story of their lives for the first time in feature documentary form.
Muta’Ali Muhammad, grandson of Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, is developing a documentary film based on their lives, their art, their activism, and their love for each other. Since this legendary couple is held in such great esteem in the black community, a film like this, produced by their grandson, would be an amazing treasure for us all.
The project, titled Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee, is in need of funding, and Muhammad has launched a Kickstarter page to raise the $50,000 necessary to complete the project. The video trailer accompanying the page is pretty amazing. Any contribution made to help this film reach fruition would be a sound investment.
