Ruby was a pioneer for African-American women in Hollywood. I had the pleasure of meeting her back in 2009 at a grand opening event for “Millions of Milkshakes” on Santa Monica Blvd in LA! She is best known for her starring role in the 1960s film

“A Raisin in the Sun”

Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and “Jungle Fever.”

Her most recent big budget Hollywood film was “American Gangster” in which she played Denzel Washington’s mother.
