Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee

In the second part of a conversation, host Bob Edwards talks to actors Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee. The couple discuss the price they've paid for their political activism and how they've been able to reconcile their personal and professional lives during 52 years of marriage. They also talk about the 1959 Broadway production of A Raisin in the Sun, and their appearances in Spike Lee's movies Do the Right Thing and Jungle Fever. Davis and Dee say they'll be honored Sunday night to receive the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award.
