R.I.P. Ossie Davis

The New York Times > AP > Arts > Ossie Davis, Actor, Is Dead at 87

What a loss....

At his memorial service, Maya Angelou said that when Ossie Davis died, "the heaviest door in the universe slammed shut, and there are no knobs." On Davis' commitment to civil rights, Harry Belafonte eulogized, "the performing arts became his rebellion to tyranny." Davis was one of those rare individuals who perfectly melded his art with a strong social conscience. To read about his extraordinary life, please click on the above link.
