I feel we should be responsible to listen to her story with open ears and let it all resonate with us because what Viola has written here is so intense and important. 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. Viola is so incredibly raw and honest when sharing stories from her childhood, her journey into being an actress, and the lessons she learned along the way as a daughter, wife, mother, and artist. Full of wisdom, love, and light, listening to Viola narrate her story elevates the experience of this book because she so expertly packs so much emotion into each sentence that was spoken. this was also my first audiobook, and i couldn’t have picked a better one to start with because viola’s performance was truly incredible.

This is one of those stories to teach white people/people of any other race how hard some black people have had it.Viola could have done well in many areas, but the acting bug bit her when she saw Cicely Tyson in 'The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. 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 am (even more so now) in awe of viola davis’ strength, resilience, talent, determination, and candour.

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. Most of the people in Central Falls were white, and Viola was the butt of vicious racist slurs since she was a child. This is one of my most anticipated reads, ever, because I’m such a big fan of Viola Davis, and it quickly became one of my favorite memoirs, ever.

There Viola was named a 'Promising Young Artist' which eventually led to a scholarship to Rhode Island College.

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.Viola shares her life story, from early childhood in true poverty in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to finding a love of acting and realizing that's what she wanted to do, to pursuing her dream and accepting herself. We need to examine, explore, scrutinize, question, contemplate, dig deep, chew, study, and appraise…. 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. Can we all exude a bit more kindness and compassion and freaking assistance when someone is struggling? 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.
