Interview: New Film Set To Chronicle the Love of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee
by Lamar Tyler
A new web campaign has started and it’s asking people like you to contribute to a new film called Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee. The film will chronicle the love of black icons Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. As if this wasn’t interesting enough, the director behind the film is their grandson Muta’Ali Muhammad.
We were lucky enough to get a chance to speak with the director about his grandparents, the film, and even the topic that always comes up when their relationship is mentioned – open marriage. Mr. Ali has also extended a special opportunity for our readers. If you have any questions that you would like for him to ask Ruby Dee during filming, leave them in the comment section below.
He will read through the comments when he gets an opportunity and if your question is good it may be selected and used in the film. Enjoy this interview and please spread the word about this project by sharing on your social networks like Facebook and Twitter. [Continue and read interview.]
