7:04 am
reopenings. >> much of america is pushing ahead with reopenings. there's no bigger symbol of that than disney world which will reopen tomorrow. that is in florida where according to "the new york times," average daily cases have jumped nearly 1,400% since the state reopened. dr. fauci is giving the u.s. poor marks for the response to the crisis. that prompted criticism of him from president trump. >> when you compare us to other countries, i don't think you can say we're doing great. we're just not. >> dr. fauci is a nice man, but he made a lot of mistakes. they have been wrong about a lot of things, clincluding masks. a lot said, don't wear a mask. now they say wear a mask. a lot mistakes were made. >> the president himself has been criticized for refusing to wear a mask. the country is short of critical supplies, including covid tests.
7:05 am
maria, good morning. what's it look like where you are? >> reporter: good morning. the state opened this surge testing site because right now in this area, they are seeing an increase in the number of covid positive cases and hospitalizations as well. it's free to come here. over the last few days, thousands of people have lined up. right now, the national guard is setting up behind me. this place doesn't open until 8:00 in the morning. we have seen cars lined up ready to take advantage. the number of coronavirus patients hospitalized in texas has quadrupled in the last month to nearly 10,000. >> the covid-19 virus in the city, quite frankly in the state, is out of control. what we do today and over the next few weeks is critical. >> reporter: in the rio grande valley, the largest hospital system says they are near capacity another state with rising numbers, california, which
7:06 am
reported its highest covid death toll thursday. los angeles officials are considering another stay at home order if hospitalizations don't fall. in arizona, in-patient hospitalization hit a record high. there are only 181 icu beds left in the state. in a little over two weeks, the state's cases have more than doubled. >> the virus is widespread. the more activity that is happening in our economy, the more the spread will continue. >> reporter: more than 2,000 arizonians have died, including a 64-year-old. >> my dad was my biggest fan. he was so proud of me. he was the first person that i can remember loving. >> reporter: his daughter wrote a letter to the governor saying his decision to lift the stay at home order in may gave her father a false sense of security. why was it important to call the
7:07 am
governor out? >> we can ask people to make the right choices left and right. but folks in times of crisis turn to our leaders to send clear messages about what to do. i believe that my father was robbed of life and that his death was preventable. >> reporter: what upset her most is that he died alone. >> i don't think that anybody should have to go through what i have been going through. i would not wish this upon my worst enemy. >> reporter: back here in texas, 39% of the people who have contracted the virus are hispanic. the largest age group with the highest number of confirmed cases is 30 to 39-year-olds. >> thank you very much. disney world is opening its doors. david, what do people feel about the safety measures disney has introduced? >> reporter: what we heard is that people felt like things
7:08 am
were going well. we talked to a couple of people who had to have their temperature checked. you had to wear a mask. you will hear about that. what's interesting is the reopening is coming at a time when cases are exploding, especially here in orange county, where most of disney world is based. the average daily increase of new cases here has exploded 1,400% since they did their phase one reopening in may. disney world is still moving forward to welcome people back. >> here we are. >> reporter: for lindsey, thursday's return to walt disney world was magic. the crowds were thin and the park employees were strictly enforcing new rules. on social distancing and wearing a mask. >> i felt very safe being there. it was a fantastic experience. one that i think that people would be surprised by. >> reporter: not everyone is comfortable with the new disney experience. like this doctor from florida atlantic university.
7:09 am
what was your reaction when you hear disney world was reopening? >> i was a little surprised. and concerned. i think it's like pouring gasoline on a fire. >> reporter: concerns about florida's accelerating outbreak prompted the actors equity association, a union that represents 750 disney world cast members, to ask disney to provide coronavirus tests for its members. >> you can't really wear personal protective equipment when you are an actor. the workplace our members go to work in is different than everybody else in the park. because our risks in our workplace is different, we need different. >> reporter: after they made that request, disney rescinded the call to bring the members back. they are filing a grievance. disney told wkmg in orlando, we are exercising our right to open without equity performers. concerns over testing extend beyond the magic kingdom.
7:10 am
>> florida is not testing enough. one out of five tests they are doing is turning up positive. that means that there are a lot of cases out there that the testing infrastructure is missing. >> reporter: this doctor of the harvard global institute says without more testing nationwide, things like opening schools or holding sporting events will be a real challenge.aggressive. we will ramp up testing, make sure we are catching the virus and isolating people when they are infected. if we take that strategy, we can get a lot of our life back. >> reporter: back here at disney world, one reason it's important to point out the fact some of the cast members asked for testing is because if you watch the local news here, there's so many people saying that i went to get tested, i had to wait two to three hours, now i wait a week or two to get test results back. the governor said they will try to set up new lines in orange county where if you have
7:11 am
symptoms, you go in a special line. disney world is set to open to the public tomorrow. one more thing, there was a death reported in broward county, an 11-year-old girl. her death was related to coronavirus. also, she had a horrible genetic disease. >> thank you very much. president trump is lashing out at the supreme court following a pair of rulings on his financial records. the supreme court rules he has no right as president to conceal h his financial records from a grand jury. they decided house democrats cannot see that information right now, at least based on the arguments they are making currently. paula, good morning. what do these decisions mean for the near future? >> good morning. the court was making a significant statement on the limits of presidential power. now under this ruling, new york prosecutors may finally be able to obtain the president's
7:12 am
financial records. but it's unlikely that information is going to be handed over any time soon. the president's attorney has vowed to continue this fight. >> this is a political witch hunt. >> reporter: president trump was indignant after the supreme court ruled he cannot block subpoenas. >> it's a hoax like the mueller investigation was a hoax. >> reporter: the court ruled the president can't block the release of his financial records to a new york grand jury. in this case, the information would only be made public if someone was charged and it was used as evidence at trial. the president's lawyers have said they will continue to litigate the issue in lower courts. the president tweeted several times that he was being treated unfairly. his hand-picked justices, gorsuch and kavanaugh sided with the liberal members of the court. the just fiices rejected efforto issue broad subpoenas for years
7:13 am
of the president's financial records. >> this is a fishing expedition. >> reporter: democrats will continue to try to obtain the documents. >> we have a path that the supreme court laid out that we will not ignore. we will never stop our oversight. >> reporter: in the new york case, prosecutors are seeking the records as part of an investigation into hush money payments allegedly paid to a former adult film star who claimed she had an affair with the president before he took office. michael cohen, the president's former lawyer and fixer, landed a three-year prison sentence as part of his involvement in the payments. cohen was released to home confinement earlier this year over coronavirus concerns in prisons. he was recently seen eating dinner out in new york city, potentially violating the terms of his release. he was taken back into custody thursday. the bureau of prisons says he was taken into custody because he refused to sign this document obtained by cbs news that would have limited his ability to use
7:14 am
social media, to talk to the press and even to write a book while in custody. cohen's legal adviser says once he was being cuffed, he did agree to sign the document. he was still taken into custody. >> i heard authorities said, it's too late. we gave you the chance. thank you very much. video shows the aftermath of the police killing of breonna taylor louisville nearly four months ago. officers conducting a drug raid burst into taylor's home and shot her eight times. we have a video showing the tension between police and taylor's boyfriend. >> comebreonna taylor's sister posted this wednesday night. police are seen in front of the apartment building where taylor and her boyfriend lived. police are pointing guns and shouting commands at walker who
7:15 am
they later arrested. >> turn around. face away. >> reporter: you can hear kenny say, my girlfriend is in there. their main concern was not my sister. >> reporter: they executed a no-knock search warrant as part of a drug investigation. attorneys for her family say no drugs were found. audio of kenneth walker's interview with police, walker says he and taylor were in bed the night of march 13th when they heard someone banging on the door. >> who is it? loud at the top of her lungs. no response. >> reporter: police say officers did knock and identify themselves. taylor's family attorney says that's not true. >> everybody there said they never heard the police identify themselves. >> reporter: in his interview with investigators, a police officer sargeant explained that despite having a no-knock warrant they knocked because they didn't consider taylor a
7:16 am
major threat. >> give her plenty of time to come to the door. they said she was probably there alone. >> reporter: she wasn't alone. walker, a licensed gun owner, fired one shot, hitting mattingly in the leg. >> the door comes off the hinges. i just let off one shot. still can't see who it is or anything. >> i returned fire. i got four rounds off. it was like simultaneous, boom, boom, boom, boom. >> reporter: louisville banned no knock warrants. a state senator is working to do the same for kentucky. >> that should have not been done the way it was. and under this proposal that i am in draft on, it would have never happened. the way it happened. >> reporter: palmer says she lived in that apartment with her older sister and that she often thinks about had she been there that night, she could have died, too. as for the three officers who
7:17 am
fired their weapons, two of them have been placed on administrative reassignment during the ongoing investigation. one of them was fired. >> the community still calling for arrests in that case. the more you hear about this case, the more disturbing it is and the more questions are raised. thank you very much. the northeast faces a rare tropical storm threat this morning. fay is expected to make landfall in new york or new jersey later today. jeff, what is going on with this storm? >> good morning. good morning, everybody. what's going on is it is located that way. we are looking south along the hudson river towards lower manhattan. clouds are getting darker. there's a wall of rain 70 miles south of here. it's raining heavy along the jersey shore. this has made history. the first f storm -- the earliest f storm we have seen.

7:48 am
the big ten is planning a conference-only season for all fall sports including football due to the coronavirus pandemic. organizers for the oldest division-one conference made up of 12 big universities in the midwest say the decision was based on medical advice. the big ten is the first of the power five conferences to make this type of extensive change to its ball schedule. commissioner kevin woarren said it could change again. >> one thing to realize we may not have sports in the fall. we may not have a college football season in the big ten. so we just wanted to make -- >> i know people are desperate for sports to come back. but as the commissioner says, this may not be the answer. we'll have to see what happens. >> i think they're really, really hoping it happens because the big ten is not only the oldest conference in college sports, but the richest or one of the richest. they made a record $759 million in revenue in 2018, last full season. had about $500 million the year before. both were records in their time.

if they can play any kind of season they'll be able to make that tv money which is what keeps them going in the future. i know they're putting the health costs first, but there are deep financial considerations here. >> there are indeed. a great point. all right. moving to this. speaking in the world of sports, a thorough breauthothoroughbred race won his first race. >> fauci has the advantage. united and resolute second. down to the line, foush fauciy to win it. >> you heard that right. fauci's co-owner said he chose the name as a tribute to dr. anthony fauci. the government's top infectious disease expert. fauci, the four-legged one, took home a winner's purse of $42,000. wait to go, fauci. gayle, i love it. >> i'll say. i'll say it's just another -- another tribute to him. he's got socks, he's got

she went missing wednesday after going out on lake piru with her son. he was found alone but save on the boat late wednesday afternoon. investigators in the south bay are trying to identified human remains found yesterday. the body turned up at a creek bed in coyote near morgan hill. it appears there was a tent or homeless encampment there. crews are investigating an overnight fire at a marijuana grow operation in antioch. you can see the side of the's home justice courts and all that marijuana inside. everyone inside made it out safely. let's look at the bay bridge toll plaza and you can see traffic is really stacked up as the morning commute continues. it is going on and let's take a look at the golden gate bridge. it is a big contrast, especially seeing all that fog. plus look at the travel times and all the major thoroughfares in the green. so golden gate bridge is all right but other areas are seeing sunshine?

7:59 am
8:00 am
it's friday, july 10th, 2020. we made it. welcome back to "cbs this morning." i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil. anthony mason is off. america sees another record daily increase 234 coronavirus cases. we'll talk to the atlanta mayor who tested positive herself for the virus. >> monopoly on wisdom. we'll talk to kimberly jones about how she uses the popular board game to talk about rationale inequality. >> and jeremy pope has a lot to say on representation in
8:01 am
hollywood. >> looking forward to that. first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> after weeks of increasing coronavirus cases, deaths are rising at a faster pace in many parts of the country. >> the state opened this surge testing site because right now they are seeing an increase in the number of co-vid positive cases. >> much of america is pushing ahead. there's no bigger symbol of that than disney word which will reopen doors tomorrow. >> what's interesting is the reopening is coming at a time when cases are exploding, especially in orange county. president trump is lashing out at the supreme court following a pair of rulings on his financial records. >> under the ruling the new york prosecutors may be able to obtain the president's financial records. >> there's a wall of rain about 70 miles south of here. the earliest storm we've seen. >> blocking particles in the medical environment and when
8:02 am
you're out mowing the lawn. >> bill nye the science guy. a new video that's gone viral. >> the main reason we want you to wear a mask is to protect me from you and the particles from your respiratory from getting into my respiratory system. thank you for joining me on consider the following. welcome back to "cbs this morning." thank you bill bnye the science guy. you can't say it enough. wear your mask. it makes a difference. >> and bravo to bill nye. that's the first time i've seen a demonstration with a candle. you would have thought i'd have seen it all. >> yes. >> as we continue our coverage to the virus, we're several months into the pandemic and the numbers continue to spiral out of control as the u.s. sets another terrible record. until 15 days ago the most cases we had seen in a day was a
8:03 am
little over 36,000. that was on april 24th. since then the u.s. has broken that record seven times including yesterday's all-time high of more than 63,000 cases. >> in arizona yesterday people waited hours to get tested as the governor signed an executive order limiting indoor dining to less than 50% capacity. the florida texas and california each reported their highest single day death tolls since the pandemic started. this comes as the cdc direct says the agency will not change the guidelines for reopening schools despite criticism from president trump. instead additional guidance is expected next week. tough times in georgia. hospitals there are quickly nearing capacity. atlanta mayor just issued an executive order requiring face masks in public spaces. earlier this week she revealed she tested positive for covid-19 but she also says she has no
8:04 am
symptoms. she joins us from her home in atlanta where she is quarantining. good morning to you mayor. it's good to see you this morning. we should say this. when you announced your diagnosis, it got a lot of attention first because, of course, you're the mayor. second, you had no symptoms and you said you and your family had been to diligent about following the rules. it affected your husband, one of your children, your other were t two were getting tested. >> the other three were tested and thankfully they are all negative, but like so many people across america, we had an asymptomatic child in our house, and we didn't know it. and had we received our earlier test results back sooner, test results that i only took because i had attended a funeral and decided to get the entire family tested, as we received those sooner, we would have known that we had an asymptomatic child in the house. by the time we were tested
8:05 am
again, three of us tested positive. that's the story that's happening across this country and it's the reason we can't get to the other side of this crisis. >> it's been reported you had delays in getting your results. it's scary because you're the mayor. you would think if anybody would get the results back quickly, it would have been you. what does that say about testing in your state? >> that our testing system is failing. it took me eight days to get our test results back. and, again, at that point one person in the house was positive. and this is the reason this virus is continuing to spread. this is the reason that people are inadvertently putting people in harm's way. it's extremely frustrating. it's disappointing. there's so many countries across the globe who somehow have been able to perfect testing and contact tracing and yet, again, we are still failing in this
8:06 am
country and specifically in the state of georgia. >> all the top experts say everybody, please wear your mask. i've heard people say wear you damn mask for emphasis. you've issued an executive order in atlanta saying in our city you're going to wear the mask. the governor said that's not enforceable. he doesn't seem to be supporting you on this. how are you navigating that and the relationship between the two of you? >> well, gayle, this is the same governor who thought it was a good idea for our state to open up with business as usual when we were not trending downward with our co-vid numbers. so right now we have hospitals that are reaching capacity. our major trauma center, grady hospital, is seeing more co-vid patients than it saw in april. and so i have to do what i am charged to do, and that is to make the best decisions on
8:07 am
behalf of the people of atlanta. and so we're pushing forward. and other mayors across the state have done the same thing. mayor johnson in savannah did it. i believe the mayor in augusta. the governor seems to be one of the few elected officials in the state who doesn't think that mandating masks is a good idea. >> president trump is heading your way, heading to atlanta next week. do you plan to meet with him and if so, what is your message to him? what do you want him to know about your city? >> i doubt he wants to meet with me, and the feeling is mutual. but what i want president trump to do is lead. it's just that simple. he is making an already bad situation worse. we are seeing challenges throughout our cities including challenges with testing. if he would allow the experts to
8:08 am
do their job, then i think that lives could be saved across this country. but he's silencing the scientists. he's silencing dr. fauci. he's interfering with guide looguidelines coming out of the cdc. it's costing people's lives. we simply want him to allow us to live. give us an opportunity to receive the most unbiassed scientific information on co-vid, and he continues to interfere with that. >> you know, mayor, you were sworn in as mayor in 2018. but you gained a lot of national attention earlier this year, because you gave such an impassioned plea to your city the first week of the protesters. i remember so clearly where you were saying protest, you need a plan. your 18-year-old son was out. you called him and said where
8:09 am
are you. your strength and passion for the city was palpable. you have mama bear tendencies. you were very upset when a young girl was killed in your city recently. i'm wondering how you're navigating. you're a mayor, a mother of four, your husband was also affected by co-vid, affected greatly. how are you navigating all these roles? >> gayle, i take it one day at a time. there's some days as of late that i take it one hour at a time and just make the best decisions that i can possibly make, and part of that means that i have to speak my truth. and my truth is that i do have concerns as a mother, specifically i have four children, three of whom are african american boys. so i understand the frustration, the fears and even the anger that so many people are feeling. but i also have this responsibility to lead our city, and this is a very challenging time for our city, and we're seeing it happen across the
8:10 am
country. but i think there are two things we have to do. one, we have to deal with immediate issues that are before us, and then we have to continue to fight and push to address the systemic issues that are causing disparities in health care and causing people to go into the streets and express their anger in a violent way. >> mayor, aur also -- it's been widely reported and well known you appear to be on joe biden's short list for the vice presidential list, you were asked are you ready, you said yes. you did not stammer or hesitate. what makes you so confident? i realize you're not courting the position. i get it. you already have a big job. what makes you confident that you'd be a good candidate for him? >> gayle, there's a saying if you stay ready, you don't have to get ready. as mayor, you have to stay ready, because you are faced with any number of challenges every day. i've served in three branches of
8:11 am
government. i've certaserved as a judge, a legislator, and now as an executive as mayor, and the challenges we face and deal with in atlanta every day really represent the challenges that are happening across this country, especially in this moment in time, and to i'm a leader. and i believe that when you are searching for a vice presidential candidate, you need someone who is able to lead in a crisis. that being said, i want joe biden to put on that ticket whomever it is he thinks will help him beat donald trump in november, because we cannot take four additional years of what we dealt with in this country. >> all right. mayor, i hope you feel as good as you look. we're sorry about the diagnosis. do you feel okay right now? >> i do. just allergy symptoms. actually, i slept for a very long time yesterday which is unusual, but i'm doing well.
8:12 am
thank you for asking. >> i admire that you can sleep. i'm a little jealous about that. thank you very much. i know you have a lot on your plat

activist kimberly jones is getting nationwide support for her powerful video that compares the economic plight of black americans to a rigged game of monopoly. her raw, unscripted speech on youtube has been viewed more than two million times, and it's also been shared by a number of celebrities from lebron james to madonna. our national correspondent, jericka duncan, spoke with jones about her important message. so for 400 rounds of monopoly, you don't get to play at all. not only do you not get to play, you have to play on the behalf of the person that you're playing against. you have to play and make money and earn wealth for them, and then you have to turn it over to them. >> reporter: kimberly jones' video titled "how can we win," is part outrage, part history lesson. she says for the 400 years since
8:19 am
enslaved africans arrived in what is now the united states, they've been playing a game stacked against them. >> how can you win? you can't win. the game is fixed. >> reporter: the atlanta-based activist, former bookseller and young adult author, has used the monopoly analogy to teach finance and economics to teenage girls. but this was the first time she used it to explain systemic rat racism in such dark terms. these referenced atrocities black communities faced decades after slavery ended. >> for 50 years you finally get a little bit and you're allowed to play. and every time they don't like the way you're playing or that you're doing something self-sufficient, they burn your game. >> reporter: you talk about tulsa. you talk about rosewood, communities that were burned down by white mobs in the 1920s. >> yeah. this idea that we should just like pull ourselves up by our bootstraps is ridiculous when
8:20 am
people are not ready to discuss the ripple effect that slavery, reconstruction, jim crow, all of that has had on our communities. they are lucky that we're black people -- what black people are looking for is equality and not revenge. >> reporter: her passion is rooted in the numbers. black households earn just over $41,000 per year compared to $70,000 for non-hispanic whites. and black families have a median net worth of $17,600, compared to $171,000 for white families. >> it was all of this racism that was allowed to happen without repercussion when people were building the wealth that they could have passed down generationally. that was taken from them. we have to reckon with that when we talk about the economic disparity of the black community. >> reporter: how do you do that? >> well, i not the first thing is to just get the education, that people need to listen. >> there's one person i saw this week whose words have been
8:21 am
echoing around my head. that captured a story so many have struggled to tell. >> people are listen, they're understanding. i think the next step is to start to put in incremental plans, some form of restitution, for these communities. whether you look at health care, education, you know, food insecurity, all of that is reverted back to economics. >> reporter: when you say restitution, what are talking about? >> i'm going to say the taboo word than everybody hates -- reparations. i think we are owed reparations. >> reporter: where did we go from here? >> i think the best thing we can do is to vote. that's only step one. we also need to pull together our community and make sure that the people that are those ballots are people that are from that community, that have the same desires for that community. we need to have real conversations and need actionable items about what we're going to do in order to see real justice and real change in this nation. [ chants ]
8:22 am
>> reporter: does this time feel different? >> i think this time feels very, very different. particularly because it's happened on such a global scale. i think people have become passionate about it in a way. that we haven't seen since the civil rights movement. and i think that in five years we're going to see a healthier, happier america. >> reporter: jones plans to publish a book based on that video which has more than two million views on youtube as of right now. she also said, gayle, that she wants to really work with people in her community to groom candidates for local elections. she understands the power there with people voting and said that's where she also wants to make a change. >> she's already making a change. first, i can't wait to read the book. ava duvernay sent me the video, and i was blown away by her eloquence and her passion and the way she put it so succinctly, something i'm not doing now. i think we all need to take a class from kimberly jones. i'm so glad you talked to her.

8:31 am
how it continues to shape our country today. educators are already bringing the "1619 project" into classrooms. they said this. it reveals the true story, the true role of slavery and the impact of racial prejudice in shaping the america today. that's why they wanted to partner along with oprah winfrey to bring this whole series of projects and platforms where people will be able to access the "1619 project." >> they have enough material for many lifetimes, gayle. >> i was going to say i can't wait to see it. i can't speak for nicole, but i know oprah is excited about it. what gets me about this, vlad, i originally picked up they said it's already taken. what do you mean? i'm so glad. great minds think alike. great minds think alike, vlad. i'm just so glad we get to tell that story. she's so psyched. hanna jones has been on and her body of work is brilliant.
8:32 am
this is very cool. >> it is. i got a bit of a history lesson at my talk of the table as well. 1775, that is when the u.s. navy traces its beginning. 1974, that is when women were first able to fly in the navy, though not in combat. 1993, finally women were allowed to qualify for combat flying. and now, right now, lieutenant junior grade madelein swagel is the first-known black female woman to become a tactical air pilot in the united states navy. there's her picture. >> look at her. >> she will receive her gold wings later this month. >> ooh. >> navy air -- >> what's her name? >> madelein swagel. she's being sprayed which is the tradition at the end of your final qualifying flight. the announcement said b.z. to her which means bravo zulu code. >> you got that right, tony. >> it's not clear what her plans
8:33 am
are next. first of all, she had to do a whole lot to get to this point. she can land a jet on an aircraft carrier which i think is one of the hardest things to do. all i can think, gayle, they're going to have to reshoot "top gun" to make it more realistic now. >> yes, yes. tony, good point. just looking at her picture makes me smile and sit up a little bit straighter. i'm so glad. i had not heard that story. so, my story is about coronavirus cases. they're climbing in florida. everybody knows that they're going up. so a doctor there wanted to spread a very important message, so he sent this tape to david begnaud and said to david, could you please spread it? david put it on his twitter. i didn't see it, but my assistant alexis saw it and said, did you see david's twitter? no, i didn't. you should take a look at the doctor. i took a look at the doctor. i said, yep, we want to help you, dr. felix, spread your message. so here you go.
8:34 am

that is jeremy pope performing the song from the musical "ain't too proud" from the tony awards. his portrayal of eddy kendrick from the temptations helped make tony history. he became the first black actor ever to receive two separate acting nominations in the same season for his roles in "ain't too proud" and the play "choir boy." he's performing archie in the hit netflix show, an openly gay man trying to make it as a screen writer in the 1940s. >> do you think he knows? >> knows what? >> that i'm black. >> he doesn't already know. >> i mailed him my script. he called me on the telephone and i told him, golly, mr. samuels, i'm over the moon you liked my script. >> you did not. >> i did. >> and jeremy pope joins us now from florida.
8:45 am
jeremy, good morning. and happy birthday. yesterday was the big day. >> yesterday was the big day. thank you. >> so, hollywood is a really interesting premise. and i don't know if people can get it from that clip, but the idea is that archie is an openly gay black screen writer in the 1940s, only prejudice and obstacles existed then exist in his path. with that kind of alternative history, how did you prepare for it coming from, well, here and now? >> yeah, um, it felt very timely when ryan presented the idea to me. you know, i think i simply asked the questions, what if we had given equal opportunities regardless of the color of your skin or how you identify, and that message is so powerful. so to see something like that on the tv, you know, forum, whether it be a fantasy, it still gives people a tangible idea how powerful that message is of equality and how we today in 2020 still have some room to go.

>> was it enjoyable to go back and imagine what might have been? or was it sad? >> um, it was enjoyable for me because i knew the representation, the visibility that it was going to show and give to people would be hopeful and, you know, ali in that pressure came out during the pandemic. everyone was able to binge watch it. also it makes you think how -- what type of art do i want to make, how can i be a better ally in the community and make sure this world that we want to create of equal opportunity can become something tangible and something real for us now. >> yeah, i ask about the sadness because we know for so many real-life screen writers in that era, it wasn't an easy path. i'm curious as you look back and inhabited the role, if there are aspects of archie you relate to from your vantage pointed to. >> absolutely. i think for me where i disconnected with archie is just, you know, often wondering
8:47 am
if there is space in a room for me in the entertainment industry. at times there is only one person of color that can be successful at a time. so archie has to face a lot of hardships and is trying to break the mold, trying to be the first because he knows that by him doing that, it's bigger than just an archie successor in my case a jeremy success. it's offering visibility for so many artists and people that come from that same narrative. so they often know by seeing things like that, by having examples like that, that they are wanted, respected, that there is room for them at the table. and i think that message is so, so powerful. >> jeremy, it's vlad. i love you as eddy kendricks, archie in hollywood. you said you pick roles that are for the greater good. how did archie fit into that?
8:48 am
>> archie, the narrative of the what if, and me coming from a place where i was working in theater, but, you know, have deems drea dreams of doing so many things. tv and film, he comes in with a show rewriting history and giving, you know, me a black artist and black writers an opportunity and a place at the table. i know it's incredibly special. and the messages i received from people that have felt moved from the show is just incredible, you know. it's an incredible journey that i've been on. i'm learning so much about myself, but i know that we're changing the world and the stories have changed people's lives. >> jeremy, i have one quick question as we are pushed off into break. you told about your mom passing out at your first broadway performance. when she woke up, tell him i'm not leaving. how did she react when she first saw you on tv? >> ma, she didn't pass out,

as to how a reverse mortgage works. people think that the bank takes your home, but that is not true. that's absolutely 100% wrong. the home is ours. we can sell it if we want to at any time. i like the flexibility of not having a payment, but i can make the payment if i want to. you're responsible for keeping up your property taxes and you're responsible for paying your insurance on the property. for us, it was a security blanket. the value of our house, was to fund our long-term health care. for years, reverse mortgage funding has been helping customers like these use the equity from their homes to finance their lives. they know the importance of having financial security. make an appointment so they can tell you how it works. it's a good thing. access your equity. stay in your home. have peace of mind.
