In keeping with this, the July/August issue of Vanity Fair marks a historic milestone for the magazine as the new cover featuring Viola Davis is the first taken by a Black photographer in the magazine’s 106-year history. George Floyd Death: Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Zoe Kravitz, Viola Davis and Other Celebs Voice their Anger Over the Horrific Incident.

Davis has been photographed by Dario Calmese for the issue in is his first major magazine cover. The issue celebrates black culture. Davis speaks to the magazine about her experience of fighting for rights and carving her way to the top as a Black woman in Hollywood. As for the cover’s inspiration, Calmese speaking to the New York Times told that his cover image of Davis, with her exposed back and gaze over her left shoulder, was meant to invoke “The Scourged Back,” a historic 1963 image of a slave with a web of whipping scars on his back.

In 2015, @violadavis became the first Black woman ever to win an Emmy for lead actress in a drama for ‘How to Get Away With Murder.’ In 2017, she won an Oscar for her supporting role as Rose Maxson in ‘Fences’—a part for which she also collected a Tony. Today, she is using her own production company to give young Black actors a platform—in every stage of their careers. “There’s not enough opportunities out there to bring that unknown, faceless Black actress to the ranks of the known. To pop her!” Davis tells V.F., naming other performers—Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart—all “fabulous white actresses,” who have had “a wonderful role for each stage of their lives, that brought them to the stage they are now. We can’t say that for many actors of color.” Read our July/August cover story at the link in bio.
