April 26, 2022, Finding Me will be released. Viola Davis has shifted social rights and representational equity in this country in so many palpable and non-concrete ways, one can only assume that her autobiography will be popular and educational. Finally, audiences are getting a chance to see behind the woman, the myth, the legend.
Autobiographies are pathways into people and lifestyles. Hearing the growth of creative persons’ careers make them tactile for creative youths going through that same struggle now. They offer us hope in the midst of social obstacles and in the search for justice. Viola Davis is a role model. And I look forward to falling into this book.
