This documentary vividly recreates the life and times of Ruth Ellis. Born July 23, 1899, she was the oldest living “out” African-American lesbian before passing away in 2000. In addition to exploring her rich past, the film offers a rare opportunity to experience a century of our history as lived by one inspiring woman. By example, Ruth Ellis shows us what is possible and what can be realized if one lives long, ages well, and also lives with pride. Running time: 60 minutes.
