Viola Davis for Essence [Oct 2013]
On Helping Her Daughter
Embrace Her Hair: "There’s not one
woman in America who does not care about
her hair. But we give it way too much value.
We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to
destroy each other, we’ll look at a child and
judge a mother and her sense of motherhood
by the way the child’s hair looks. I am
not going to traumatize my child about
her hair. I want her to love her hair.”
The issue hits newsstands on Sept 20.
