I was surrounded by so many Black Historians. Amongst these Historians were Ossie Davis, and Dick Gregory I was given the true enlightenment and knowledge to be a Proud Black Man. These Brothers Mean Something, And We Should All Strive To Leave Our Mark In This World. R.I.P.✌ #dickgregory #ossiedavis #mlk #blackhistorians #blacklivesmatter #iamblackhistory #getupstandup

Black History Day 188: “I find, in being black, Instagram Photo ImageBlack History Day 188: “I find, in being black, a thing of beauty: a joy; a strength; a secret cup of gladness.” ~ #OssieDavis was one of the notable #AfricanAmerican directors of his generation, but as an actor, he sought to bring dignity to the characters he played, including those with menial jobs or from poor backgrounds. Along with being an actor and director, Davis was a #civilrights activist. He maintained close relationships with Malcolm X, Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King Jr., among others. Davis delivered a eulogy at the funeral of Malcolm X and participated in a tribute to King at a New York service for the slain leader. Davis married Ruby Dee in 1948, and together they were prominently involved in the Civil Rights Movement. In 1989, Davis and Dee were inducted into the NAACP Image Awards Hall of Fame. In 1995, they received the National Medal of Arts. Ossie Davis died of natural causes in February of 2005. . .. ... .... ... .. . #iconicblak #blakfacts #historyinthemaking #blackhistory #blackhistoryyearround #blackexcellence #iconicblakwoman #iconic #iconicblakman #blackactivists #pioneers #blackhistory #blackhistoryyearround #blackhistoryallyear #repost #sayitloudImblackandImproud #365daysofblackhistory #didyouknow #onthisday #blackexcellence #blacklivesmatter #BLM #blackexcellencetribute #weareamazing #blacklove #blackpride

Black History Day 189: “The kind of beauty I wan Instagram Photo ImageBlack History Day 189: “The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within - strength, courage, dignity.” ~ #RubyDee is perhaps best known for starring in the 1961 film A Raisin in the Sun. She`s also known for her civic work with husband #OssieDavis. Dee was an actress, playwright, screenwriter, activist, poet and journalist. She joined the #AmericanNegroTheatre in 1941.

In 2008, Dee received her first #Oscar nomination for playing Mama Lucas in the hit film American Gangster. In 1991, Dee won an #EmmyAward for her work on the television movie Decoration Day. In 1998, Dee and her husband published With Ossie and Ruby: In This Life Together, a look at their life experiences during their 50 years of marriage. Dee suffered a tremendous loss in 2005, when her husband, Ossie Davis, died unexpectedly.

From @kinolorber Spring Sale:
From @kinolorber Spring Sale: "Cotton Comes To Har Instagram Photo ImageFrom @kinolorber Spring Sale: "Cotton Comes To Harlem". Year: 1970. Directed by Ossie Davis. Starring: Godfrey Cambridge, Raymond St. Jacques, Calvin Lockhart, Redd Foxx and Cleavon Little. Part of that 70`s wave of black cinema but right before blaxploitation got started with 1971`s "Sweet Sweetback`s Baadasssss Song". It`s a film about 2 hustlers selling a dream to the Harlem community. That`s has much as I wanna know before I see it. #cottoncomestoharlem #ossiedavis #reddfoxx #cleavonlittle #blaxploitation #blackcinema #soulcinema #grindhouse #genrecinema #dvdcollection #dvd #dvds #dvdcollector #filmcollector #70scinema #film #films #cinephile #cultcinema #cult #moviejunkie #moviebuff #moviecollection #moviegeek #kinolorber
