Congratulations Viola Davis!
Viola Davis made history on Sunday by becoming the first black woman to win an Emmy for best drama series actress, but said there is still work that needs to be done in getting more diverse stories on screen. She won for her role as the professor and defense attorney Annalise Keating in ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder,” which is just beginning its second season. In her acceptance speech, Davis quoted Harriet Tubman. She ended her speech saying; “there is a difference when it comes to actors of color in this business. If it’s been 67 years since an actress of color has won an Emmy then there is certainly a line.”
