Viola Davis was named by the Emmys the first black woman to win best lead actress in drama for the television show, “How To Get Away With Murder.”

“In my dreams and visions, I seemed to see a line, and on the other side of that line were green fields, and lovely flowers, and beautiful white ladies, who stretched out their arms to me over the line, but I couldn’t reach them no-how,” said Davis, quoting Harriet Tubman in her acceptance speech. “Let me tell you something,” she continued, “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.”
