Let's close our eyes, and think back to 2017. It was the year of Black Excellence at the Oscars. Viola Davis won her first Oscar, earning her the Triple Crown; An Emmy (First African American Actress to win Lead Actress in a Drama), A Tony (Two actually, because she's a BOSS), and now an Oscar. This brilliant adaptation of August Wilson's iconic play gave us performances we won't soon forget. The fight scene between Denzel Washington and Viola Davis puts this years fight in marriage story to shame.
