About this deal

Growing up without the tools needed to heal from her trauma, Viola struggled a lot throughout her career, From attending Juilliard, to winning her first Tony, and then to winning her first Oscar, Viola carried that broken little girl with her everywhere. I enjoyed too her journey of growing up and getting out of that household, to develop into the talented and amazing actress she is today.

However, I imagine it’s hard to put together a memoir where your fans are curious about both of these elements of your life. not just winning an Emmy, a Tony nomination, a Golden Globe award, screen actors Guild award, a star on the Hollywood walk of fame, an Academy award for best supporting actress…. She also talks about her personal life, sharing health challenges, meeting her husband, and adopting her daughter. You can also listen on any Alexa-enabled device, compatible Fire tablets, Kindles, Sonos devices and more.Sometimes we just want more time to bask in the experience of a magnificent book —- of an magnificent human being - a powerful Black Woman….

I liked her realness about so many elements of her life, including the awful colorism she faced as a dark-skinned Black woman, the difficulty of making a living as an actress, and what it felt like for her to witness her abusive father change into a genuinely kind person over time.Viola Davis, an American actress and producer, is one of the few performers who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony (EGOT). 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. This is not a memoir that traces a celebrity’s humble beginnings to their eventual success; this is a memoir of healing, of finally making peace with oneself. Taking off the wig in How to Get Away With Murder was my duty to honor black women by not showing any image that is palatable to the oppressor, to people who have tarnished, punished the image of black womanhood for so long.
