Betty and Coretta (2013)

In a unique film technique, Dee served as narrator and historical witness in the Lifetime film which starred Mary J. Blige and Angela Bassett as Dr. Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King. She gave first-hand accounts of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and their wives' lives. Both she and her husband were personal friends with both of the families.
