Davis became the first black female to lay claim to the award, the Huffington Post reported. In accepting the honor, Viola recalled words that Harriet Tubman penned in the 1800’s.

“The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there.”

Viola Davis made history on Sunday evening as the first woman of color to ever win Outstanding Actress in a drama series for her role in How to Get Away with Murder.

HOW IT BEGAN ?

I had no plan! Here is my truth. Didn’t hire a storyteller and will not lie so here I am! An avid life lover, who traveled enough to feed her creativity. The glamorous, the nomad, the retro, the clean and opulence… I’ve seen and loved them all. Life is too short to have rules and structures when it comes to art.. “You have to choose what your brand should look like”- they said… I want my brand to be felt… Fragments of emotions captured on textiles that’s all: MVSE.
