Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

Viola Davis


I know this was making the rounds a month or so ago, but I wanted to share it again. If The Help is dumb about race (and it is) the actress who anchors the film is certainly not, and the clarity and hope that she shares about representation and roles for people of color on film are communicated beautifully in this speech.

Love her.
