Whether you have seen her owning the courtroom in her hit reality TV-show “How To Get Away With Murder” or organizing a union of black maids in the historical drama “The Help”, you are bound to be a fan of Viola Davis.
Davis’ highly anticipated original memoir titled, Finding Me is due for release on April 26, 2022.
Debuting her acting career in 1992, Viola Davis has grown to become one of the most critically acclaimed actresses in America, ranking number 9 on The New York Times greatest actors of the 21stcentury list. But the road to success in an industry that grossly undervalues black talent was not an easy one for Davis.
Davis grew up extremely poor and has reported that on some occasions she had to rummage through garbage to find food. Her difficult upbringing has inspired her to partner with several philanthropic and advocacy organizations, including Hunger, a nationwide campaign to eradicate hunger across America.
Finding Me, recounts Viola’s life from the early days of her childhood to her life now as one of the most celebrated black actresses of all time. Fans can expect deeply honest and reflective writing, as well as relatable life lessons on what it means to work hard and persevere.
