On June 7, Kamau and Melissa attended the American Film Institute’s 47th Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Denzel Washington, where Kamau finally met Denzel!

Check out the Getty images, including Michael Kovac’s photos of Kamau’s introduction to Denzel. And be sure to listen to Episode 119 of DWITGAOATP, where Kamau shares all the details with Kevin and guest David Alan Grier.

According to an as-yet-unverified rumor, a Denzealot somewhere may have arranged for Kamau’s invitation. While the rumor is based on pure speculation, and there’s not one shred of real evidence to substantiate it, we don’t care … we’re running with it.
