Davis previously talked about her birthplace in A 2016 interview with People, revealing the home is situated on land that was once a plantation.

“I wasn’t on it long, because I was the fifth child, and so we moved soon after I was born,” explained Davis, who grew up in Fall River, Rhode Island.

“I mean, I went back to visit briefly but still not aware of the history. I think I read one slave narrative of someone who was on that plantation which was horrific. One-hundred-and-sixty acres of land, and my grandfather was a sharecropper. Most of my uncles and cousins, they’re farmers. That’s the choice that they had. My grandmother’s house was a one-room shack. I have a picture of it on my phone because I think it’s a beautiful picture.”
