Marsha Hunt had starred in 52 motion pictures before she became blacklisted in Hollywood in 1947 for her vocal support of liberal political causes.
Since then, the 95-year-old actress has dedicated herself to a variety of causes and worked with several organizations, including the United Nations and Freedom From Hunger.
Today, she continues to be an advocate for change and supports the LGBT community wholeheartedly.
On April 19, her song “Here’s to All Who Love” — a track she wrote in support of marriage equality — was performed by Carol McArthur at the Talking Stick in Venice, Calif. The performance was followed by a Skype chat with Hunt, where she explained to the audience why and how she wrote the song.
