The day I met Ruby Dee was such a moment for me!! I was in awe!! I admired every rule she re-created and every fight she fought to make change real! I loved her work, the way she loved her craft, the art of theater and performance! I especially loved the love that emanated between her and Ossie Davis! Talk about inspiring!!! But the day she shared her spirit with me, read poems out of my book and shared her poems with me!??? I thought I might have died and gone to heaven! Which is where I know Ruby and Ossie happily reside together now…

To one of the greatest in all the world… Thank you for coming into my life and showing me that the best characteristics are humility, passion and family!! I will always remember your impact on me….

Look at lil AK! In a moment I will never forget!! At Auntie Oprah’s Legends ball in 2005! I had the opportunity to be in the presence of the phenomenal Dr. Maya Angelou, Whose every word was a message! Whose books and poetry all inspired me to speak louder and to write deeper and go forth no matter what obstacles are in the way!! She is the most incredible example of survival and thriving and using experience as a tonic of encouragement and possibility! An angel on earth has ascended to heaven!! Thank you beautiful Dr. Angelou for all that you have left behind for us! We miss you already!
