Actress Ruby Dee had connections to Wright State University


Faculty members at Wright State University had the honor of working with noted actress and activist Ruby Dee on at least two occasions.

Dee, who died at age 91 in her home Wednesday night, is remembered as both “vivacious” and “gracious.”

Along with actor Martin Sheen, Dee and her husband Ossie Davis recorded the narration for the school’s theatrical production of “1913: The Great Dayton Flood.” The drama, originally produced in 1996, was re-staged in 2013 with the voices of the famous couple used once again.
