Viola Davis made history during yesterday's 67th Emmy Awards, as the first black woman to take home the title of Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama series. But she didn't just take home the award for her role in How to Get Away With Murder, she delivered a tear-jerking, empowering speech that lifted up her community, which has been kept out of leading roles for too long.

Her daughter is dyslexic, but neither her child’s tenured teacher nor the administration offer any help. Read More
