About Us

Nora, Guy, Hasna

Nora Davis Day, Guy Davis, Dr. Hasna Muhammad

It was our great fortune to grow up as the children of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. They parented us and taught us life habits and life lessons, but they also raised our consciousness as a vital component of raising us always with the People in mind.

Like their lives and their legacy, the website is not just about them or specific to the 3 of us and our extended family. We want to continue to share with all of you what they shared with us. Their voices in the conversation about love, art, and activism in the vernacular of our time are needed now. If they were here, they would be proclaiming the importance of action in the name of the People all over the world. And so, in their physical absence, we step up and step forward. We invite you to join us. If one of us falls, another one of us will take that place in the line of march because the Struggle continues.

“Struggle is all there is, and we are still committed. And even if, from time-to-time, it finds us slow or absent, we ask the Struggle to accept our children. To give them meaning and purpose just as it did us. To make a place for them in the line of march.”
