“I had to defend myself as an artist, but I found myself defending myself as a dark-skinned Black woman in front of people who did not know my life. I took my wig off because I no longer wanted to apologize for who I am…”—Viola Davis
All I could say when I saw the October cover of Essence magazine is, "Man, look at that beautiful skin."
You would have to be blind not to see how beautiful Viola Davis and her skin is on the magazine's cover. She literally radiates off the pages.
The October issue hits newsstands on TODAY.
Will the lovely Viola Davis inspire you to buy a copy?
