She is one of six children, grew up in a crowded home where her dad was abusive to her mom, and her and her siblings often went hungry and unclean. Viola is as unwavering with the recollection of her own pain and trauma as she is wholehearted with the reminiscence of her hope and healing.

Viola feared an entertainment career would not help her support herself, and she didn't want to live in poverty like her parents. The author is discussing the pain that she had to suffer due to the mindset of people due to the influence of the Jim Crow laws. The older children were raised by their grandparents until Mae Alice could no longer stand to hear stories of them being beaten in school, and sent for them to come to Rhode Island. The book is absolutely exceptional, Davis finds ways to make you cry and shows her readers the work and effort she has put into her success. Overall, Viola is such a strong woman, but she also shares her struggles and vulnerabilities, and how she made it to this point of stability, peace and understanding.At the age of forty-seven Viola got one of her best known roles, playing Annalise Keating in the television series 'How to Get Away With Murder.

The level of courage and bravery needed to overcome some of the things Viola has experienced is extremely high. Every painful memory, every mentor, every friend and foe serves as a chisel, a leap pad that has shaped “ME!I do not consume either on a large scale so I was unaware of the lack of respect for those that often did theater.

Viola prayed to meet a good man, and finally, on the set of 'City of Angels', she met Julius Tennon, whom she later married. Davis begins at the beginning: born on a South Carolina plantation (truly), she shortly moved with her mother and alcoholic father to Central Falls, Rhode Island, where she grew up in dire poverty. Viola Davis is one of the best actors of this generation and has won multiple awards in acting, like Oscar, Emmy, and Tony.I was fighting an ideology about what an actor was, and it was all born in the depth of white superiority.
