The above is the house where I was born August 11, 1965. It is the birthplace of my story. Today on my 55th year of life....I own it....all of it.— Viola Davis (@violadavis) August 11, 2020

Edit: It was previously reported that Viola bought the home she was born on, a home on a former plantation. She did not buy the house.
Viola clarified her comments on her IG: “Uhh....contrary to websites....I do not 'own' above house, I 'own' my STORY!! Too abstract I guess."
Happy birthday to Viola. ✨👸🏿✨
