Academy Award nominee Viola Davis is one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood. As a child, however, Davis grew up poor in Rhode Island. Her race and class status led classmates to mistreat her. “We moved there [to Rhode Island] in 1965, and we were the only black family," Davis said on episode of "The Talk" in October 2012. "In grade school I was definitely singled out and teased. Eight to 12 boys every day would chase me after school with bricks and sticks and just say ugly, black, ugly, ugly.”
