Viola Davis will be the keynote speaker at Loyola Marymount’s 109th commencement next month.
The Oscar winning actress is a member of an elite group of actors who have achieved the triple-crown of acting — Oscar, Emmy and Tony awards. She’s also the most-nominated Black female actor in Academy Award history. Aye!
“Ms. Davis’ journey as actor and activist — filled with integrity and purpose — is one that we are eager to share with our students, faculty and LMU community, for it resonates with our mission and elevates our vision as a university with global reach and impact,” said LMU President Timothy Law Snyder.
Loyola Marymount’s commencement is scheduled for July 31st at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.
