When internationally-acclaimed actress Viola Davis gains her star on the 好莱坞星光大道 1月. 5, 在世界各地为她加油的人中,有两个特别的人:她的姐姐, Deloris格兰特, and the sisters' earliest acting coach, 罗恩·斯泰森毡帽.The Federal 向上的束缚 program links all three.

1979年,十几岁的德洛里斯和维奥拉一起参加了为期六周的集训 向上的束缚 program at Rhode Island College. 在斯泰森在大学预科学校工作的唯一一个夏天,他们就这样做了, student success program for those who are low-income or "first generation," meaning their parents did not obtain a college degree.

The job was "manna from heaven," 罗恩 recalled during an interview in late December. 为什么? Besides allowing him to expose teenagers to the serious pursuit of theater, 很多都是第一次, 他开玩笑说, “我不得不给我的车加油."

罗恩, 她在戏剧界工作了几十年,是纽约邻里剧场的资深演员, 早在维奥拉获得两项奥斯卡提名(电影《最靠谱的网赌软件》和《网上十大网赌娱乐大全》)之前,他就很欣赏她了,),几十年后她才获得艾美奖(凭借《最靠谱的网赌软件》(How to Get Away With Murder)中的女主角)。. 他回忆起一个14岁的孩子,他没有被他严厉的爱的教学方法所吓倒. Humble about the role he played in her life, 罗恩表示, "I can't stress this enough: This is Viola's story, 不是我的."

罗恩 asked his students to raise their hands if they wanted to become an actor. 所有的人都举手了. As he emphasized the difficulty of an acting career, 高失业率, the rarity of career opportunity, 更别说成功了, more and more hands came down until Viola's was the only one left.

“我喜欢她。”罗恩回忆道. "I know myself well enough that I brought a lot of ego into that room. But she was a very determined kid. I mean, Viola was 14 years old! But she didn't back down; as Viola herself told the New Yorker, she was reaching for the ceiling."

She remembers growing up poor in a family of one brother and five sisters. Yet the 向上的束缚 program was a bright spot for the whole family. 当被问及她是否参加了学生成功计划时,她笑着说:“是吗 在跟我开玩笑? 第一年, I went to some classes with [older sisters] Diane and Anita," who were also enrolled in 向上的束缚 - at that time, 最小的妹妹, 丹尼尔, 还太小不能参加吗. (Ultimately, the five Davis sisters all obtained college degrees.)

德洛里斯说,和维奥拉一起在罗德岛大学度过了六个星期的暑假,这让两姐妹走得更近了,这是一次鼓舞人心的经历. "Our lives became intertwined,德洛丽丝说. "Having six weeks away from home, developing my own sense of self, 做戏剧, 上课, 就像一个, 巨大的礼物."

然而,这个家庭却举步维艰. When there was no food in the house, Deloris, Viola and their siblings sometimes would look through garbage for something to eat. 戏剧提供了一种逃避, 尽管饿着肚子上床睡觉的经历是他们俩都永远不会忘记的——这也是维奥拉现在成为 饥饿是, an effort that aims to end childhood hunger in America.

Despite poverty at home, the girls' educational life blossomed. Between 向上的束缚 classes every Saturday and attending high school, they were in school six days a week. "The teachers in 向上的束缚 were some of the best teachers I ever had. They were brilliant and compassionate. They treated me like I was such an intellectual, and I wasn't used to that. 在此之前,我觉得别人因为我是黑人女性而对我不同,德洛丽丝说. "罗恩's classes liberated me as an artist. I realized, you know what, maybe I really am 重要的. Maybe I really can do something great someday."

向上跳跃的经历对德洛里斯和维奥拉产生了如此大的影响,以至于他们决定在罗德岛学院毕业后立即为向上跳跃的学生建立一个奖学金基金. 启动基金, she and Viola put on a one-woman show at the college in 1988, 筹集200到300美元. The beginnings were humble, but they were the start of something much bigger. 从那时起, 他们创立的基金, Rhode Island College's 向上的束缚 Scholarship Endowment Fund, 已经提供了数万美元来帮助几十名上进学生支付大学学费和书本费. After Viola was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for "The Help," fellow movie actress Meryl Streep, with whom Viola co-starred in "Doubt,捐了10美元,向该基金捐款000英镑.

"Viola is always asking me, 'are any of the kids hungry? 他们需要食物吗??' She has given so much to the students at my high school. People have no idea,德洛丽丝说.


至于罗恩, 他仍然很谦虚,并对自己所扮演的角色感到有点惊讶,因为他引起了人们对一个14岁的上进学生的兴趣,而这个学生已经成为世界一流女演员之一. "The arts empower people," he said. "Somewhere along the line, someone said 'Yes,' to Viola."
