We all applauded and some of us even marveled at the display of love and sisterhood from Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis shared at the 2015 Emmy Awards.

If you’ll recall both Davis and Henson were nominated for leading actress in a drama series. And Viola won for her work in “How To Get Away With Murder.”

As she took the stage, Henson embraced her so strongly and authentically. She went on to deliver a powerful and memorable speech about opportunities for actresses of color in Hollywood, while Taraji stood and clapped, enamored.

But apparently, the bond between the two began long before that night. In 2009, both Viola and Taraji appeared on the May issue of Ebony magazine. And in a recent Instagram post Viola shared on her Instagram feed, that wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Taraji.
