Viola Davis To Release Memoir ‘Finding Me’ In April 2022: This Is My Story, Straight No Chaser

Viola Davis has taken on award-winning roles throughout her career, and now fans will learn more about her life journey and personal story.

The How To Get Away Murder star is penning a memoir Finding Me, slated for release on April 19, 2022. It will share her childhood experiences of growing up in poverty in Rhode Island to becoming an Oscar-winning and critically-acclaimed actress.

Viola Davis said in a statement,

“I believe that our stories, and the courage to share them, is the most powerful empathetic tool we have. This is my story … straight no chaser.”

She also shared her emotions on the upcoming release on Instagram and wrote,

“From my heart….both excited and terrified to share”

HarperOne will release the book. President and publisher Judith Curr said in a statement,

“Viola Davis is a powerful truth-teller — through her work on stage and screen, as well as in her life. I’m looking forward to working with her on a book that powerfully reveals the risk and danger for a Black woman living in the fullness of her talents and gifts — and the reward and freedom that comes with it.”

Viola Davis is certainly receiving her flowers lately. Earlier this year, she became the most Oscar-nominated Black actress in history after receiving a nod for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayals in Netflix’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

She’s also the only Black woman to have two Best Actress nominations. She received a nomination for The Help in 2012, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Doubt in 2009, and won Best Supporting Actress for Fences in 2017.
