The Next Chapter

Welcome to the next, electronic chapter in the story of Ossie & Ruby!
For more than 50 years, our journey has taken us to theaters, sound stages, and audio booths — as well as to union halls, schools, college campuses, and the streets — where we’ve hob-hearted and hobnobbed with some beautiful people. Along the way we have seen, heard, and learned many things that have cascaded unforgettably over our lives — things too precious not to share.

— Ruby Dee (1922-2014)
