I believe that the privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Viola Davis

Celebrated actress Viola Davis has starred in dozens of movies and television shows, including 2011's "The Help" and 2020's "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom." She was the first Black woman to collect an Oscar, a Tony, and an Emmy, aka the Triple Crown of Acting. In 2016, when she was awarded the inaugural #SeeHer Award from the Critics’ Choice Association (she also picked up an Oscar that year, for Best Supporting Actress in the movie “Fences”), she said in her speech that being who you are is "the privilege of a lifetime." Strong words indeed from a woman who has embodied almost 100 different characters over the course of her career.
