Dinner guest Dawnn tells Sidney that she's loved him since she was 8 years old. As a young, single mother raising two boys 25 years ago, she says Sidney's life and works have taken on significant meaning in her life.
"I was 21 years old and … I saw your [first] autobiography in the bookstore, and I just snatched it. And every night after I put the kids to bed, I would just start reading your book and I just fell in love with you even more," Dawnn says. "Every time I wanted to make a point, if I wanted to stress education, I wanted to stress that they can do anything that they wanted to do, I would always tell them about you. Always. I've just always admired you."
