Why Is Viola Davis's Vanity Fair Cover a Sight to See?

Viola Davis is Vanity Fair's July/August cover star, shot by Black photographer Dario Calmese. This comes after backlash of Simone Biles's recent Vogue cover, which some say wasn't done the justice it would have been had the shoot been done by a Black photographer. In the accompanying article, Davis talks about her upbringing and emergence into Hollywood, as well as her personal participation in the Black Lives Matter movement.
