Description

Viola’s childhood was tough- and it wasn’t just that her family was poor- but that she lived in a home where substance abuse and violence prevailed.

I was fighting an ideology about what an actor was, and it was all born in the depth of white superiority. Viola- I am so happy that you are full of self- love now- that you know how beautiful and talented you are, and I hope you know what an inspiration you are, as well. IN MY BOOK, YOU WILL MEET a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever.I think it’s always nice to see who public figures or stars are behind the image we create and this glimpse behind the image did not disappoint. Viola Davis, Inside Out: How she drew on a life of private hardship to become one of the greatest actors of her generation. Viola Davis teaches us how to tackle a situation that she considers the biggest discovery in her life. She does not color rose over childhood glasses — she saw her daddy’s drunken beatings of her mom to within an inch of her life — yet, she can love the man he becomes without punishing him for his past. After getting past the early(nightmare) childhood years —-Viola began her career (so damn interesting of even how she got from A to B), in Central Falls, Rhode Island….

It’s no accident that Time Magazine named Viola Davis one of the 100 most influential people in the world. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be. Please include what you were doing when this page came up and the Cloudflare Ray ID found at the bottom of this page.My heart broke listening to the stories Viola shared, including befriending kids who she knew would invite her over after school so that she would be fed at their houses. Her childhood was riddled with trauma: she shares devastating stories of enduring racism, constant hunger, rampant sexual assault by neighborhood men, and constantly reeking because her family couldn’t afford to do laundry. In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever. In the past, we've been used as chattel, fodder for inhumane experimentation, and it has evolved into invisibility.
