Viola Davis Calls Her Followers To Vote With A Forceful Statement That Remembers Police Brutality Victims

The first African-American actress to achieve the Triple Crown of Acting, Viola Davis goes on voicing the social issues.

The other day, Davis uploaded a video clip that shows the history of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement; and remembered victims of police brutality. Through the clip, the actress aimed to urge people to vote in the upcoming elections in order to change the entire system.

The ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ actress wrote:

“When we look back on 2020…when you look at what we know of American history…What will be our legacy? Will it be of conceding defeat and allowing the status quo to continue to squeeze the life, liberties, and hope out of us? Or will it be a collective, calling on our ancestors, taking back our worth, FIGHT!!!”

Then Davis highlighted the importance of fighting for justice and stated that in case the people of America wanted to see a bright future in terms of racial equality, then the fight was the only way.

“Let this time be about using every Black life lost as warrior fuel to suit up and go into battle. To do what? To fight for….really, really, really fight for, America we want to see!! An America that serves the US!! An America that protects us, that gives to us, an AMERICA that doesn’t dehumanize us…an America that believes that we MATTER!!”

At the end of the caption, demanded justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Emmet Till and concluded her words by encouraging her 7 million followers.

“Because if we don’t fight, WE will be the ones walking away from George Floyd while he had a knee on his neck. Or ignoring Breonna Taylor as she’s being sprayed with bullets. Or Mary Turner as her baby is cut out of her. Or Emmet Till‘s screams as he’s being tortured. VOTE!!! VOTE!!! REGISTER TO VOTE!!! Let’s begin to heal. Let the world see that WE believe we matter. RIP Breonna!! ✊🏿❤️🖤💚#BLM”
