Jerell interviews that he grew up in South Central LA and that it was "interesting." They lived 2 blocks from where the riots started and the liquor store next to their house was burnt down. Yikes. He says that his folks did everything they could to give him and his sister a better opportunity. Jerell tells Tim that his father couldn't be there to meet him because he had to work. Jerell goes further in his interview and says that he didn't see his father much growing up because he was a truck driver and was always on the road. He was working hard for them. There's the cutest photo of an afro-wearing pops holding Jerell. His dad was kind of a hottie. Jerell becomes emotional describing the sacrifices that his father made for him and his sister. He tells Tim that he thanks his parents for giving him the freedom to be creative and take chances. His mother seems really pleased to hear him say that. She says that she is very proud of him for striving for his dreams. We see him doing a little dance for Tim as he leads him out the door.
In Brooklyn, Tim checks in on Kenley. Of course she lives in Brooklyn. From the exterior of her building, it looks like she lives in Williamsburg or Greenpoint, which is even more perfect. You know she wears one of her little head feather concoctions to even pick up her morning egg sandwich. Tim enthusiastically greets her when she opens the door of her apartment. She interviews that she was really happy to see Tim and it almost sounds like she was surprised to be happy to see him. She interviews that she hopes that he loves her line. Tim looks around her place, which is small but well appointed, and tells her that it is a classic New York apartment and he loves it. She replies, "I know." She says that she values Tim's opinion, even though it "seems" like she doesn't. If by "seems," she means that she said she didn't value his opinion, then, yes, I guess it "seems" that way. We see a photo of Kenley's grandmother when she was young, sitting on the ground with a floral print dress spread on the ground around her. Kenley explains that she was a calendar girl. She says that her grandmother was involved in fashion in the '40s, had great style, and was a huge influence on Kenley. We see shots of Kenley throughout her childhood with her grandmother. It's very sweet. Kenley cries and tells us that she passed away a couple of months ago, so it has been hard. That's really sad. I'm sure she'd have wanted her to be at Bryant Park to see her show. Kenley says she'd be really proud if she could see what she was doing.
