Congrats goes out to Actress Viola Davis! She made history yesterday evening by winning an Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Drama! She made history because she is the first African American to win that type of award, I am so proud to say to her congratulations and that I got a chance to meet her here in Atlanta when she was in the movie The Help. She gave a powerful speech and had everyone in tears like fellow nominee Kerry Washington and more!
At the 65th Annual award show she wore a very pretty custom white & black gown designed by Carmen Marc Valvo, perfect for the occasion indeed, what a beauty!
“The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You can’t win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.” ~Viola Davis
