Viola Davis's Book Finding Me
What is Viola Davis's book finding me about?
Viola Davis’s Book Finding Me is about her upbringing and tells us how she got to be the beautiful woman we have grown to love. She talked about how her father used to sleep around on her mother when she was younger and how that affected them. She talks about how they also had to deal with racism early on.
Viola Davis shares her story of how she worked her way up through the system and broke the glass ceiling and how demanding the journey was. She shares her heartbreak and the trauma it took to strike at that ceiling, then the cuts as she rose through the glass debris that seems endless even as she has “made it.”

Narrated by Viola Davis
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.
This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose and my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.
As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were opened to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world.
So, I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate, clawing their way through vague memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you.
Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter to self. I hope that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.
“It’s clear from the first page that Davis is going to serve a more intimate, unpolished account than is typical of the average (often ghost-written) celebrity memoir; Finding Me reads like Davis is sitting you down for a one-on-one conversation about her life, warts and all.”—USA Today
“A fulfilling narrative of struggle and success…. Her gorgeous storytelling will inspire anyone wishing to shed old labels.”—Los Angeles Time
