Ruby Dee, actress, civil rights champion, dead at 91
June 12, 2014, 12:45 PM EST

NEW YORK (AP) -- Ruby Dee, an acclaimed actor and civil rights activist whose versatile career spanned stage, radio television and film, has died at age 91, according to her daughter.

Nora Davis Day told The Associated Press on Thursday that her mother died at home at New Rochelle, New York, on Wednesday night.

Dee, who frequently acted alongside her husband of 56 years, Ossie Davis, was surrounded by family and friends, she added.

Her long career brought her an Oscar nomination at age 83 for best supporting actress for her role in the 2007 film "American Gangster." She also won an Emmy and was nominated for several others.

More to come...

The truly 'great ones' are now of a certain age, and we are losing them.

Feeling Blessed to have been acquainted with their works.

You are finally reunited with your beloved Ossie.
