Girls Write Now Mentees posed questions to Viola Davis, the first African-American to receive a Triple Crown of Acting (Academy Award, Tony Award, and Emmy Award). Viola was joined by Keisha Lance Bottoms, Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia.
Mentees expressed admiration for Viola’s work, asked about her various career paths—from actress to producer to author—and heard answers that could change the trajectory of their own lives!
