"She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful." (x)

I really resonated with this moment so much. So many people (especially other Black people) mocked this scene and Viola Davis’ worth, beauty, autonomy, experiences, and the representation her character embodies for Black women. And that ignorance reemphasized Viola Davis and many black women’s reality and actual struggle with feeling other-ed, being seen as one dimensional, and being seen as the bottom of the hierarchy of beauty standards. I hate that Viola was so empowered by getting this role and then hateful ignorant people exploited this moment on the show to belittle her with anti-Black jokes and referencing trope movie roles she specifically wanted to move away from (referencing: The Help, The Color Purple). Viola is a goddess and this moment on How to Get Away with Murder was revolutionary.
