  • Last night on  “Oprah’s Next Chapter,”  Viola Davis made a stunning accusation. The information that she divulged was not the shocking part of it however. It was that she publicly addressed the issue at all that left people surprised.

    Said Davis,

     ”We’re in crisis mode as black actresses. It’s not only in the sheer number of roles that are offered and that are out there, but the quality of the roles. The quality — and therein lies the problem. We’re in deprivation mode because me, Alfre and Phylicia, we’re in the same category.  Whereas if you take a Caucasian actress, you have the one who are the teens, in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s — they’re all different. There are roles for each of them. But you only have two or three categories for black actresses.”
