Viola Davis’ ascension to Black Hollywood royalty has been a joy to watch. From her Oscar nominated role in The Help to leading a bad ass girl gang in the critically-acclaimed Widows, Davis is on top of her craft with nothing in her path to stop her.

Viola was recently tapped to play Shirley Chisholm in the upcoming Amazon Studios film that will chronicle the historic politician’s life. In conjunction with her film company JuVee, The Fighting Shirley Chisholm will reportedly be directed by Maggie Betts.

“JuVee Productions is beyond excited about our new relationship with Amazon Studios. We share the same vision of creating a vast and rich array of narratives that are inclusive and reflective of our world,” Davis told Deadline.

“We started this company with a fierce commitment to integrity and the encouragement of emerging and/or established artists who have the courage and talent to be disruptors. We are thrilled that we can continue to share our vision on a global scale alongside Amazon Studios,” she continued. “It is our legacy.”

With much to celebrate, we celebrate Viola Davis for living her best life!
