Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gaye Adegbalola is a blues singer and guitarist, teacher, lecturer, activist, and photographer. She was born Gaye Todd in Fredericksburg, Virginia on March 21, 1944. Gaye's father, Clarence R. Todd, was the first Black school board member in Fredericksburg and was also a jazz musician. He later founded a performing arts group for black youth called "Souls of Shade," today known as Harambee 360. Her mother, Gladys P. Todd, was one of the first organizers of the local civil rights movement in Fredericksburg, and also brought old jazz records home from her job at the Youth Canteen to give to the young Gaye. Both parents were major influences on her music and social identity.show more
