The multi-awarded and nominated actress Viola Davis recently sat down with social justice activist Tarana Burke to discuss her new book, “Finding Me: A Memoir.” The intimate, at times funny, emotional, and deeply inspiring conversation was frequently interrupted with cheers and applause from the packed audience of the 92Y’s Kaufmann Concert Hall. Davis shared vignettes from her childhood, from the poverty she and her family experienced, to being awarded a scholarship to Juilliard, to becoming the first African American to achieve the “triple crown of acting.”
