Recently Jenifer Lewis has been on a media blitz to publicize her new book “The Black Mother of Hollywood” Back in 1980 I got a call from my dear friend Vickie Carter pleading with me to make an outfit for her friend who was going to be making her New York Cabaret Debut at Don’t Tell Mama’s and needed an outfit to wear. “She is going to be a major Star, Believe me. Please you have got to do it. She can’t pay because she doesn’t have the money” I dearly loved Vickie and so I designed and made an outfit for Jenifer. Vickie was right she did become a star and WOW what a star she evolved to be. I wonder if she remembers the outfit that I created for her?
