Viola Davis and Genesis spend the day with sea creatures. The actress and her daughter recently visited the Georgia Aquarium where they interacted with dolphins and watched sea lions in action. Viola held her daughter as Genesis rubbed the fins of a very friendly dolphin. The actress even gave the sea creature a ball that he held in his mouth until the Kodak moment was captured.

Viola is set to star in the upcoming film, ‘Prisoners.’ Based in Boston, ‘Prisoners’ explores the life of a distraught father who kidnaps someone he believes is responsible for the disappearance of his daughter and her friend. Davis will portray the role of ‘Nancy Birch’ in the film.

Genesis in Viola and husband Julius Tennon’s first child together. The couple adopted the little one in 2011.

    • No disrespect intended to Ms. Davis (as I don’t know anything about her) but if BCK will allow it I’ll share an anecdote with you. My niece is adopted, she will be two years old tomorrow. At birth she had some health issue that were taken cared of, now she is fine. Before her heart issues were resolved and she came back HIV- there was one other couple wanting to adopt her; a white couple; but my brother as a single man was able to adopt her because the bio mother (who died when she was seven months old) wanted my brother; and by extension; my family to have her and also because she would have future medical issues that my family could take care of.

      There were three other babies of color that were born about the same time as her, given up for adoption at birth still in the NICU when she left. I don’t know the current status of those kids but at one year only one of the babies had been adopted (by a white family, they came to my niece’s birthday party last year). One of my brothers friend (she also dates his friend maybe that’s why she was so comfortable being “honest”) is the liaison to the hospital and she said that if those babies had been light complected she could have gotten them adopted. Sounds crazy? She said that even BLACK people come in wanting lighter complected babies, some hide it better than others but she can’t understand why two fairly dark complected people would prefer a child that those not look like them to one who would.

      Ms. Davis looks so in love with Genesis so I wish them the best. Love knows no color, my family is an example of that but even when I was a little girl playing with dollies my preference were for the ones who looked like me. Every year my great-grandma gave me two dollies, one white, one brown, I took every dolly given to me but at the toy shop I always choose the tan one. JMO

    • VIOLNA DAVIS PROBABLY DIDN’T EVEN PAY ATTENTION TO HER DAUGHTERS SKIN COMPLEXION. THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE THAT ADOPT AND THEY ASK FOR A BLACK BABY, NOT A SPECIFIC SKIN TONE. PLEASE STOP THINKING THAT CAUCASIONS ARE SO INNOCENT. SOME OF YOU ALWAYS COMMENT ABOUT HOW CAUCASIONS SEEM TO ADOPT BLACK CHILDREN OF DARKER SKIN TONES BUT THAT IS NOT TRUE. ALSO LETS NOT FORGET THAT CAUCASIONS STARTED THIS WHOLE SKIN TONE IGNORANCE. JUST BECAUSE SOME ARE ACCEPTING OF IT NOW DOESN’T MEAN THAT THEY DONT PAY ATTENTON TO IT. IT DOESNT MEAN THAT THEY DONT’ ADOPT LIGHTER SKIN BLACK CHILDREN AS WELL. I THINK SKIN COLOR IS AN ISSUE IN EVERY RACE AND THE DISCRIMINATION STARTED IN THE CAUCASION COMMUNITY. THEY DISCRIMINATED ON EVERY RACE.

      • @Connie1, First off Happy Easter, ..now no one said Viola Davis went and picked out a light skinned baby, they just commented on the contrast between the complexions. I added my personal experiences on four Black babies available for adoption from BIRTH and a year later, the two darker ones are still in the system. They are babies, they should have been flying off the shelf. Race relationships (Black/white) is probably a subject people like you or I will never agree on. Maybe it’s age, I’m 15; I don’t know how old you are. Maybe it’s culture, nationality or other but those of us who are moderates (or don’t believe that white people are evil jumbees) when we speak about white people we are not speaking about them in the abstract. They are our mothers, fathers, grandparents, tio’s or tia’s. They wipe our noses, behinds, support us and if necessary die for us. We don’t believe they are good, while Blacks are bad. We are just seeing both sides while some are choosing to only see the Black POV.

        OK, white people started race discrimination in the US but the world is not made up of just the United States and in this era of globalization we need to let some stuff go BECAUSE, while they started it in America, we Black Americans are the ones continuing it by separating ourselves from each other by a shade of complexion. As a Black child with predominantly white relatives, let me tell you this, while we are busy saying who is lighter than who, they just see us as Black or other (I have some REALLY creepy German relatives that ask my mum, again and again; why does she; meaning me; have white people hair. and want to touch my hair). My mum, dad and I are three separate shades of “Black”, (think Halle, tanned Olivier and Nahla), I can see it but in my bisonna’s eyes we are all the same shade.

        Now, I know you have have said you have dated all races but just wondering; did you really give the other races a fair shot at winning YOU? There are some pretty awful white people in America who would prefer a lighter skinned Black baby, but you know something; WHITE AND STUPID IS NOT MY ISSUE. My issue is when BLACK people do it.

        Its one thing when one race discriminates against another but when its your OWN race? C’mon Again, the question begs, yes some babies just “click” for some adoptive parents; like my brother; but when you have a choice why wouldn’t you pick the child that most looks like you? Again, I am not speaking about white people who choose to adopt outside their race, there is a shortage of white babies; I’m talking about Black people who have an abundance to choose from and are preferring the lighter ones (and the experienced social workers can tell).

        • @OXFORD, WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHERE A LITTLE BLACK GIRL CAN BE TOLD ALL HER LIFE THAT SHE IS UGLY BY CAUCASION PEOPLE. WHEN THAT LITTLE GIRL GROWS INTO A WOMAN, AND DECIDES THAT SHE HATES HER OWN COMPLEXION, THE SOCIETY POINTS THE FINGER AT HER AND ONLY HER AND TELLS HER TO GET IT TOGETHER OR GET OVER IT. THEY TELL HER THAT SHE IS JUST DUMB FOR HATING HER OWN COMPLEXION BUT THEY NEVER FIGHT THE REAL ISSUE. (CAUCASIONS) INSTEAD THEY MAKE HER FEEL WORSE THAN SHE ALREADY DOES. NOW THAT IS THE SOCIETY WE LIVE IN. WE TURN AROUND TO EACH OTHER AND POINT THE FINGER. (EXAMPLE- BLACK MEN ARE THE REASON THEY ARE LOCKED UP. BLACK WOMEN ARE THE REASON THAT THEY ARE SINGLE. BLACK WOMEN ARE THE REASON THEY HAVE COLORISM ISSUES. BLACK MEN ARE THE REASON….AND ON AND ON. BUT WHAT IS THE TRUE REASON? WHERE DOES THE ISSUES STEM FROM AND HOW DO WE CHANGE IT WHEN WE ARE AFRAID TO ADMIT THAT CAUCASIONS ARE THE REAL ISSUE!

        • @OXFORD, WHY COMMENT ON THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THEIR COLORS? DOES THAT EVEN MATTER? IF YOU THINK THAT THE ONLY ISSUE IS US(AFRICAN AMERICANS) WHO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST OUR OWN, THEN YOU ARE TRULY MISI-NFORMED. SO I GUESS YOU DONT BELIVE IN WHITE PRIVILEGE OR UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT MEANS AND HOW IT EFFECTS OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH EACH OTHER.

        • @OXFORD. WHITE AND STUPID SHOULD BE YOUR ISSUE. IT IS A HUGE ISSUE THAT OFTEN GETS OVER LOOKED BECAUSE MOST AFRICAN AMERICANS WHO ARE LIKE YOU, CHOOSE TO ONLY PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN RACE AND CHOOSE TO FIGHT AGAINST YOUR OWN INSTEAD OF FIGHTING AGAINST THE REAL ISSUES OF RACE AND DISCRIMINATION WHICH BEGINS AND ENDS WITH CAUCASIONS (THE MAJORITY). I DATE ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE BUT I PREFER AFICAN AMERICAN MEN. I WILL MARRY AN AFRICAN AMERICAN MAN. THAT IS MY CHOICE. THAT IS WHAT I PREFER. IF YOU THINK THAT CAUCASIONS ONLY SEE ALL OF US AS JUST THE SAME (BLACK) THEN TALK TO SOMEONE WHO IS AFRICAN AMERICAN AND ABOUT 90 YEARS OLD. THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT CAUCASIONS DEFINATELY LOOK AT COMPLEXION. THEY LOOKED AT IT WHEN THEY WERE SEPERATING OUR ANCESTORS BETWEEN THE HOUSE SLAVES AND FIELD SLAVES.

  3. Okay she’s cute and all blablabla I agree. However I can’t help wondering why on earth when black couples are adopting they tend to pick a light skin baby…. while a white couple will pick a darker skin one…me just saying knowing that most people here won’t agree with me ;)

    • For the same reason people who adopt dogs begin every conversation with he/she is a rescue. In many cases it is because they want to emphasize that they have rescued a child. The same is true of people who make a big show of giving at charity functions. Some are not genuinely interested in the child but want the attention they get from their peers for adopting. It’s a shame that for some these kids are just an accessory or some sad woman’s attempt to emulate what the celebs are doing. You worry about how it will all turn out when the kids get older and the trend gets old.

      • Computers should come with a gadget which whenever someone types a dumb behind less than 3rd grade ignorant comment, they would automatically get zapped with small doses of common sense.

        • Both got dry hair that a fact period. I’ve got natural hair and got the same problem don’t see why telling the truth about them bothering you that much…

          • It doesn’t bother me that people have dry hair, I have dry hair most of the time myself, dry hair is common with blacks. The issue is the only thing people ever mention is hair or complexion. So the hell what they have dry hair, look at that lovely smile. Her hair is nicely cropped & style, not unruly. She’s a cute, happy baby, all that gets passed by people but oooohhhhhh goodness her hair being dry, now that’s the most important thing about this precious baby.

            This is why black people stay 500 yrs behind everyone else…

          • The truth never bothers me. Everyone suffers from dry hair, myself included too many times to count. What bugs me is out of that pic, that is all that is mentioned. Look at Genesis’s smile, her cute face, how happy Violet is, none of that is mentioned, just her hair is dry. Y’all forever focused on complexion & hair on this blog like it’s the value of y’all worth. Let it go already & y’all wonder why we don’t progress..y’all stay oppression yourself. Miss me with that.

      • VIOLA DAVIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ACTRESSES. HER AND HER DAUGHTER ARE GORGEOUS. I LOVE THEIR NATURAL HAIR. I DON’T THINK IT LOOKS DRY AT ALL. SOMETIMES AFRO’S TEND TO LOOK LIKE THAT, ESPECIALLY ON CAMERA BUT IT IS NOT DRY. DUTCHESS, YOU MAY EXPECT IT TO LOOK ALL SLICK DOWN, CURLY WITH GEL ON IT, BUT THAT IS NOT THE LOOK THEY ARE GOING FOR. ON ANOTHER BLOG I READ, THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH BLACK HAIR IS THE FACT THAT BLACK PEOPLE THINK IT’S A PROBLEM. THAT IS A SAD STATEMENT BUT SOMETIMES VERY TRUE. I AM PROUD TO BE ONE OF THOSE BLACK WOMEN THAT LOVE MY NATURAL HAIR AND I TRULY APPRECIATE VIOLA DAVIS AND HER DAUGHTER FOR WEARING THEIR HAIR EXACTLY THE WAY GOD MADE IT!

  4. I dont use this word that often but it seems appropriate in this case. That little girl is gorgeous. I love her afro.
