  • Finding Me

    It's impossible not to find pieces of oneself while Viola Davis guides us through her journey to find herself through the cascade of growing up black and poor in a highly abusive home.  I highly recommend the audiobook version in which Viola Davis narrates her story of survival, success, and finding herself.
