Viola Davis bought her birthplace on a former slave plantation for her birthday

The plantation is located near the town of St. Matthews in Calhoun County, about 38 miles from Columbia.
The above is the house where I was born August 11, 1965. It is the birthplace of my story. Today on my 55th year of life….I own it….all of it.
