Description

Like most readers will probably feel, I thought Viola’s childhood was the most emotional and engaging part of the story.

I see people—the way they walk, talk, laugh, and grieve, and their silence—in a way that is hyperfocused because of my past. I honestly have no words- One simply must experience this memoir for themselves to truly appreciate it.

The author is discussing the pain that she had to suffer due to the mindset of people due to the influence of the Jim Crow laws. The Davis family also lived in grinding poverty: they often went hungry; didn't have coins for the laundromat; lacked heat and telephone service; and had rats all over the apartment.

Viola Davis teaches us how to tackle a situation that she considers the biggest discovery in her life. My only regret- I have from listening to Viola read ‘this/her’ memoir so brilliantly—is that I wish I had been part of a small book group -having ongoing discussions—chapter by chapter. Sometimes we just want more time to bask in the experience of a magnificent book —- of an magnificent human being - a powerful Black Woman…. Her sister Dianne, a fourth grade teacher, seeing Cicely Tyson on television, and attending Upward Bound spurred her to dream about who she could become. I see people-the way they walk, talk, laugh, and grieve, and their silence-in a way that is hyperfocused because of my past.I have loved this actress for a long time based solely on her skills as an actress, but now I am doubly impressed. 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. Overall, Viola is such a strong woman, but she also shares her struggles and vulnerabilities, and how she made it to this point of stability, peace and understanding.
