About This Lesson

Wil Smith enrolled as a freshman at Bowdoin College at the age of 27 with his infant daughter, Olivia, in tow. He had kept his daughter a secret until his arrival out of fear that the college would not allow him to attend. Wil balanced his studies, a night job, and basketball, all while raising his daughter. As a teenager, Olivia sat down with her dad to hear more about their days as college roommates. This all-new animated short is presented as part of the new StoryCorps animation season, Father Figures, where father figures and their children share the strength and wisdom that they draw from each other.
