If there’s one woman in Hollywood who will always leave you with a good word and an inspirational story it’s Viola Davis. Whether sharing her experiences growing up poor in Rhode Island or the discrimination she’s faced as a Black woman in Hollywood, Davis has always been an open book and now she’s releasing her own.

Today, HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced acquisition of the Academy Award-winning actress’s memoir Finding Me. Set to be released April 19, 2022, the book will be published in partnership with Ebony Magazine Publishing.

Described as “a true hero’s journey,” the novel will span the 55-year-old’s life from her childhood in Central Falls to her present-day career as a philanthropist, Tony Award and Primetime Emmy Award-winning actress, and CEO/CoFounder of JuVee Productions. And it will tell her story of overcoming obstacles to now become the most nominated Black actress in the history of the Academy Awards.

“I’m an artist because there’s no separation from me and every human being that has passed through the world,” Davis writes in the book. “I have a great deal of compassion for other people, but mostly for myself.”

Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis will be the keynote speaker at Loyola Marymount University’s 109th commencement next month at SoFi Stadium.

LMU’s undergraduate, graduate and LMU Loyola Law School Classes of
2020 and 2021 will be recognized at the July 31 ceremony.

“Ms. Davis’ journey as actor and activist — filled with integrity and purpose — is one that we are eager to share with our students, faculty and LMU community, for it resonates with our mission and elevates our vision as a university with global reach and impact,” said LMU President Timothy Law Snyder.

Davis is a member of the elite group of actors who have achieved the triple-crown of acting — Oscar, Emmy and Tony awards. She’s also the most-nominated Black female actor in Academy Award history.

Most recently, Davis was honored with a Screen Actors Guild Award and nominated for an Academy Award for her lead role in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Davis became the first Black performer to win a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Annalise Keating on the ABC drama “How to Get Away with Murder.”

Davis and her husband, Julius Tennon, founded JuVee Productions, which develops and produces entertainment content with an emphasis on narratives from a diverse range of emerging and established voices.

Davis is a graduate of Rhode Island College and The Julliard School, which both have awarded the actress honorary doctorate degrees.

Dear users,
if you visited the site in the past 2 days you might have noticed a maintenance message that was informing you about changes coming.
The big news is: Simply Viola Davis is merging with oldest, biggest and amazing fansite Viola Davis Online; this will take some time because their gallery is big and there’s a lot to add and many links to fix, but I’m committed to make this.

I want to take this occasion to thank my good friend Ali, for trusting me to continue the beautiful fansite she created. I will try to do my best to live up to the expectations.
Stay tuned and keep visiting.

The site will be named Simply Viola Davis and can be found at viola-davis.com (and for the moment violadavis.net) and its twitter is @ViolaDavisCom
