Although I didn’t grow up in Baltimore, I have grown to appreciate the traditions and the legacies that make up this great city.
From the skyline to the people, Baltimore is enriched with culture, charm ( in some places) and history.
One Baltimore legacy in particular that I’ve grown to respect is Baltimore’s Mother Theresa, Bea Gaddy! She reminds me of my grandmother in the way she gave to her community; making sacrifices for others and not for herself. I heard some great stories about her and I was honored to have been selected to work with her family center on several occasions.
She was a family woman who loved not only her children and grandchildren, but her extended family as well. Bea Gaddy made sure the members of her community had food, clothes, and anything else she was able to get her hands on.
I had the opportunity to broadcast my show live a few times from the family center and that experience allowed me to witness the love the community had for her which was a result for what she did for them.
And that’s why I chose the Mother Theresa of Baltimore, Bea Gaddy as my Baltimore spotlight for Black History Month.
