What do you do when you’re tired, hungry, hot and sweaty with swollen ankles and sore feet? You take fabulous pictures of yourself in the ladies bathroom. That’s what I did in between takes during the filming of the final episode of Krystal Grant Stomps The Yard.
In the Kellogg Convention center on the campus of Tuskegee University, I snuck into the ladies bathroom to escape the wind that was destroying my hair and the humidity that was ruining my deodorant. I was exhausted, and ready to go home, but we didn’t have nearly enough footage to make one full show, so I had to keep taping.
I knew it would be a long day; therefore, I added a little silliness into my routine just to keep me awake, and entertained. The bathroom was beautiful…for a bathroom. It wasn’t a typical public restroom. The toilet paper was colored and the decor was fabulous. We stayed in there for nearly an hour shooting photos.
But then, reality set in and I realized I had to go back outside and stomp the yard for a few hours more. Tomorrow the episode airs. I hope you like it.
I am very excited to officially announce my latest project. Krystal Grant Stomps The Yard is a 5 part web series that delves into the history, campus, academics, and student life at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. This 5 part documentary embraces the important impact that Black colleges have on America and the world. Take a look at the official trailer for my web series below.
