About this deal

Really great memoir about Viola Davis’ journey from a child growing up in poverty to becoming an award winning actress. I feel connected to her and to all the women, of any color, of any biological nature, who fight every day for the birthright to be themselves.

Overall, this was a beautiful, heart-wrenching book and I'm so glad that Viola Davis felt comfortable enough to share her story: the good, the bad, and the ugly.All members can listen all they want to thousands of included audiobooks, podcasts, originals, and more in the Plus Catalog. 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…. Objectively speaking, Finding Me is a powerful story; it's not an easy one to read, as it's one born in pain and violence. In sophomore year, Viola found her courage, decided to be a theater major and was on her way career-wise.

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. In 2001 Viola won a Tony Award for King Hedley II, and then the 2008 movie 'Doubt' marked her transition from stage actor to film/Hollywood actor.The racial segregation and black codes caused by these laws made it difficult for African Americans to access public transportation, schools, cast votes, and even gain economic independence. a little luck (impossible without the work), ‘very’ interesting details about the BUSINESS of being a working actor …. When I heard last year that Viola Davis had a memoir coming out in April, I excitedly added Finding Me to my TBR list and also thought, I actually don't know that much about her but I do know I'm a huge fan — I loved How to Get Away With Murder. I’m not one to enjoy love stories but this was a stand out part of the book that really impacted me. Viola Davis is one of the best actors of this generation and has won multiple awards in acting, like Oscar, Emmy, and Tony.
