Oscar Career Spotlight: Ruby Dee

I'm getting more excited for the Oscars as we get closer to the big day, and to prepare for the red-carpet (from my comfy couch) I'm looking more in depth into the nominees' interesting careers. Ruby Dee is one remarkable woman — on screen and off. She has more than 50 years of acting on her resume (she was born in 1924), and off stage she and her husband, Ossie Davis, have been involved in civil rights protests and causes and active supporters of equality and civil rights issues. Take the quiz to see how much you know about this American Gangster actress who's been an inspiration to many — maybe you'll even learn something new!
